This quote from a book I read lately has really stuck in my head...

"See, that's the thing about white peoples, always wondering if they happy enough"

Anyone know which book it's from?

Did that quote stand out for anyone else who read The Help or was it just me?

I really want to see the movie and how it compares to the book. You'll have to let us know how you liked it, Robyn!

That quote didn't really stand out for me. My favorite one - and that I've seen around Pinterest - is "You is smart. You is kind. You is important." LOVE.

Haha, I knew it, too! My SIL gave me the book when she finished with it, and I sent it to my sister. Idk if she has read it yet, though. It was definitely a good one!
