I recently spent 5 hours straight reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I really enjoyed this story. Many of you have probably seen the movie or heard the hype and I have to say I agree. This is a fantastic book. While not a YA book I could see this being in a high school classroom. It’s very female centered which I think would be great at an all-girls school. The content is appropriate an it is an interesting look at a point in history in the southern United States. I’d be curious to find if teachers have started embracing this yet.
What did you think? Was it worth the hype? Would you use it in a classroom? Should I see the movie?
