Welcome to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge
Today’s letter is
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
I know I know, I’m choosing old books but you go where the Bad Girls are, right?
So today on H day we are traveling to 1960s American South, during the civil rights era. There are a plethora of Bad Girls in this book. First, Skeeter. She’s return home from college and is expected to marry. Problem is, Skeeter’s not too interested in marriage right now. Also, she wants to know the whereabouts of her beloved Constantine, who has raised her. Meanwhile Skeeter meets Abileen and Minny, two African American women who are just trying to survive in the cruel South. All of these women band together to work on a secret project and while separately they are Bad Girls (or Bad Women) together they form the Bad Girls Fight Club, voicing their opinions about how wrong the way things are in The South. And if you know this book, you know about the pie. And if you don’t know about the pie, you should read the book just for that scene. There is nothing meek or mild about these ladies. They are the epitome of Bad Ass.
Well, that’s letter H and you made it through another week of the A to Z Challenge.
