Here's Niv's Pick for BOTM,

"In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women--mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends--view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, 
The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't."
