February 17th Discussion Books

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Rock and the River by Kekla Magoon
Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice by Phillip M. Hoose

What did you think of this month's books?  Share your thoughts at next Thursday's book discussion after school in the library.

 My favorite couple phrases from The Help were:

"If only singing was a color."

"I only been cooking white Thanksgiving since Calvin Coolidge was President."

My moment of repulsion happened when Miss Hilly says to Aibileen, "How do you like your new bathroom?"  She then waits for Aibileen to thank her before moving on.  'Waits' is probably not accurate because she prods her to say thank you.  Skeeter is standing outside the room, praying that Aibileen doesn't say it, but it can't be avoided.

Another good quote: Elizabeth smiles like she's talking to a child, although certainly not her own. I am starting to notice things.
