Genre: Realistic fiction
Rating: ☆☆☆, a good read
Total number of pages: 398

Review by: Juan-Carlos

What my book is about:
The Help is about black maids who worked for white families in the early 60’s. Skeeter the main character and protagonist in the story and writes about the perspective of a black maid. Skeeter puts the stories of all the maids and publishes the book so that every white lady could read it.

The character I felt most strongly about:
I feel like the main character Skeeter because she was in most of the chapters and she always had conflict with Hilly Holbrook the antagonist. Skeeter Phelan was a white women who reticently graduated from college and works at a newspaper industry and she writes them and wants to write a novel.

A part of the book that really stands out for me: NA
