i'm currently half way through reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett and i'm really enjoying it so far. apparently they are making a movie version with Emma Stone in the lead role. it should be interesting to see her in a more serious role (i seriously love her in Easy A) but this early look of her in character cracks me up (the girl she's playing, Skeeter, is not supposed to be all that attractive).
has anyone else read this book? thoughts?
UPDATE - finished the book this morning (whilst sitting in my car waiting for the shuttle to work :) highly recommend. great characters and it really shies away from contrived cheesy resolutions. hoping the movie version will be as good.
