The Help by Kathryn Stockett, but if you haven't read it yet, you really must.
I couldn't help but envision Miss Skeeter (one of the narrators) as a grown-up Scott from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Skeeter (Eugenia) and Scout (Jean Louise) have a great deal in common: both grew up in the deep South, both loved their black housekeeper, both discovered prejudice is carefully taught, and both fought to cross the line of what society expects and what is morally right.
I finished reading this book in record time with a desire for more. I sincerely hope that Ms. Stockett writes another book.
