“You gone have to ask yourself, ‘Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today?'”

Kathryn Stockett,The Help

Stockette was born in 1969 and published her debut novel in 2009.

So many powerful lines from this book. I’ve read this book twice now, once when it was first published, and a second time last year for the book club I had in Sydney. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it both times, and as I expected, I learned a great deal more reading it the second time around.

This quote is something I find myself saying to my children as they grow up and face the judgemental world.
