Are they authentic and believable, or does Stockett fall short in her attempt? Is it appropriate, or more importantly, right for Aibileen to tell Mae Mobley civil rights stories, even though this is the last thing her parents want?

Hi, everyone! Thank you so much for participating in, the Help, read Along. I am so excited to be reading this book now for the second time and for the chance to discuss it all with you (thank you, Stacie for letting me put this together!). What would a section narrated from Hilly's point of view look like? Which character aside from Skeeter, Aibileen, or Minny would you most like to narrate a chapter? In Chapter 1, Aibileen reveals that after Treelore's death, she became bitter about the work she does for white families. And, of course, try to keep up if you can. Here are a few discussion questions for chapters 1 through 5 just to get us started. You can answer these, ask your own questions, or make any comments at all that are relevant for the first 5 chapters. Will she want to explain her side? People who Shmooped this also Shmooped.
