by Kathryn Stockett
I'm glad my book club chose this so I would read it before the movie comes out. Well, I'm also glad because I really enjoyed the book. I feel like I was the last person on earth to read it. It seems everyone I know had been raving about it, and it deserves the praise. It's well-written (another first time novelist.... I'm impressed), entertaining, funny and touching. There is some PG-13 language, mostly the s-word, and adult themes, so I wouldn't recommend this for anyone under 18.
