A definite 5!

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

Jackson, Mississippi in 1962. Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan returns to her families cotton plantation after graduating college with one plan in mind - to become a writer! All around her black women were in the homes of the Jackson elite. Cleaning, cooking, raising the white children. While the housewives play bridge and socialize. Told through the eyes of Aibileen and Milly as well as Skeeter, this is the story of unlikely friends who join together to fight the injustices done to these hardworking honest women.

This was such a great story. I loved the three points of view and really grew to love these women. While simultaneously seething about the white women who mistreated them. I did not want this book to end!
