The Help by Kathryn StockettWhen new college graduate Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan returns to her childhood home, she is dismayed to find that her long time nanny and confidante has been fired and sent away.  Determined to discover the reasons behind the abrupt departure, Skeeter uncovers more than she bargains for.  Aspiring to be a writer, Skeeter talks to the African-American maids who not only keep the houses, but also raise the children of the white middle class.  What she learns will not only shake up her life, but those of "the Help."  Kathryn Stockett's novel, "The Help," explores the true meaning of courage, friendship and gentility.
