Finally! My second 5-star book for this year. Man, I really enjoyed this novel!! It's complex, deep, entertaining, funny, depressing, and inspirational. All the characters work together to make this supremely unique and fantastic novel. Three women narrate this book seamlessly. And as an audio book, I greatly enjoyed the different voices, accents, and performances in general.

Miss Skeeter just graduated from college and wishes to write. She wants to create a novel based on interviews with the black maids of the town she lives in. No one wants to cooperate because it's an extremely dangerous task. Soon, Aibileen and Minny, completely opposite maids of Jackson, come together to help Skeeter with her project. It turns into something so much bigger than any of them expected.

This novel also takes us through these extraordinary women's personal lives. Each of them has a story of their own to share while making this book come to life. They are amazing, strong women. They have such admirable skills and traits. Definitely a must read!

I just can't get over how much I loved this story!! :o)
