I had no idea when I picked this book up how much I would love it. Set in Mississippi, during the turbulent 1960's a privileged, young, white woman dreams of being a writer. Skeeter applies to several publishing houses, but has no previous writing experience. A woman that works at a publishing house sends her a letter and tells her to write whenever and whatever she can. When Skeeter finds a job writing a "how-to" cleaning column for the local paper she realizes she needs help. She finds the answers in the form of her best friends black maid. What starts as a basic request for cleaning tips soon turns into an unbreakable bond.
You will not want this book to end and once it does you will want to tell everybody you know to read it.
