I'm sure everyone out there has heard of "The Help", a great novel by Kathryn Stockett. I first heard about it from my mom, which led to my sister, then a few blogs....so, needless to say I had to get my hands on it and see what all the fuss was about. I saw Sherah last Friday, and luckily she owns the book and lent it to me, yay! I must say, the fuss isn't all for nothing. This a great great read. I can't put it down. It sucks you in with humor, truth, and prejudice I still can't quite wrap my head around. It's heavy, don't get me wrong. But, that's part of why I love it so much. Prejudice, slavery, and mistreatment of other humans is NOT to be taken lightly, nor is it a "light" and simple issue. I encourage everyone to read this. I'm only only page 150 and I already have a strong attachment to the story and what it stands for. P.S. Only a few days more, and DUCK FOOTBALL is back!!! Happy Thursday!
