@umph, its drama fiction. I finished the book (the help) it was really good. I mispelled the authors last name though, its Stockett. Check it out and let me know what you think.

The help was a great read. You definitely wanted to know more about the characters. Hopefully she will have a sequel to that especially with it being her first book.

Have any of you read The Bluest eye by Toni Morrison? Or her short story Recitatif??, which I really enjoyed how one is forced to decide each character's race, the story still has me guessing.
