DC girl I just finished reading this book and have to admit that I really liked it... except for the ending. I was expecting a little more closure to some of the key characters like Aibeleen, Hilly, Minny, and Skeeter. I am not a bad person but was soooo getting ready to see Ms. Hilly suffer all the bad things she did to others and didn't get that. So a li...See More
