Book Club Friday

She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken. Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is short, fat, and perhaps the sassiest woman in Mississippi. She can cook like nobody's business, but she can't mind her tongue, so she's lost yet another job. Minny finally finds a position working for someone too new to town to know her reputation. But her new boss has secrets of her own. Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. And why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement... ."

I wanted to get this book read before the movie comes out this fall! I am hoping to get some of it read tonight as i will not be going outside, we are in a EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING! YUCK! So i will be staying inside snuggling with my dog and reading until the weather is a bit more tolerable :)

Can't wait to see what you are reading!

Until next time,
