FC: The Help | A children's book | By: Rachel Hipps
1: One day there was a girl named Skeeter , and she got a job at her local newspaper doing the weekly Mrs Myrna column for housekeeping.
3: Skeeter was born to write books, but she needed something good to write about.
5: Finally she got the idea to write about the maids in her home town of Jackson Mississippi.
7: The first mad she convinced was Abilene. she was the maid for one of Skeeters good friends and helped her with the Mrs. Myrna column. Abilene was very skeptic though because of the danger this could put her in.
9: The second maid Skeeter convinced was Minny. Minny was one of the most reluctant of all because she was already seem as somewhat of a rebel in the maid community.
11: Both of these women have both funny and heart wrenching stories to tell about being the "help".
13: Abilene told of how the white family she works for is requiring that she use another bathroom so that they dont get the diseases that only black people carry.
15: Minny told Skeeter about the time a white lady upset her and the next time she made her one of her famous chocolate pies she put her own poop in it.
17: Many other maids came forward to tell their stories and all of these stories were compiled into a book that was named The Help. the book soon became a best seller.
19: Soon the white women of the town started to figure out that they were the characters in the book. this didn't make them too happy but the maids stories were out and Skeeter was now an author , and everyone got what they wanted, or deserved
