The Help by Kathryn Stockett

So here's the thing. BzzAgent is this rockin word of mouth marketing company. Companies who need to get the word out about their product(s) hire BzzAgent to spread the word like a bunch of busy bee's. They get together at their "beehive" and find BzzAgents who fit the right demographics (age, gender, kids, single, location, you get the picture) that said company is looking for and ask them to spread the word by giving them a sample of the product to test out and usually some rockin coupons to pass out to people. Then the selected BzzAgents have to report back to the hive and dish out the good, the bad, and the ugly. I am a proud BzzAgent and have been since 2006 thankyouverymuch!

BzzAgent has recently (and I mean as of last week) started this thing called The Daily Bzz. Its where each day they offer a new campaign and give you the chance to prove yourself worthy of it by posting why. Pictures, videos, blogs, whatever. Just post why you want in and link that up to twitter adding the hashtag #imabzzagent. Oh wait you don't have a BzzAgent account you say? Well what in the world is wrong with you!! Sign up right here and you can get your busy bee on!

Below you will find my shameless begging to get into The Help Campaign. Wish me luck!

The first time I discovered the book The Help by Kathryn Stockett was actually because of the movie. I saw the commercial for it advertising its soon to be release date. Immediately I was interested and needed to know more about it. I looked online and that's when I discovered that this movie was actually based on a book and that the reviews were awesome. Everyone was saying the same thing "I didn't want it to end" I didn't want to put it down". Kinda crazy that this book is such a hit and now a movie but it was turned down 60 times before it was published. Kudos to Kathryn for not giving up! I haven't read the book yet but I did just read the first chapter thanks to a sample from and I'm dying to read the whole book.

From the first chapter that I have read and from the reviews of others, here is a summery. It takes place in the south during the early 60's and the civil rights movement. Basically a young white college graduate wants to write a book telling the stories of 3 black maids that work for white families and the mistreatments they deal with on a daily basis. I know I'm not telling you much but since I haven't actually read the entire book I am kind of limited on my information. But I can tell you that just from the first chapter that I read, I didn't want to put it down and I can't wait to read the whole book. Its no wonder they made a movie out of this book! I can't wait to see that too by the way! If I'm fortunate enough to get picked for this Bzz Campaign then I will return on here and write a proper review of the entire book. ~~BzzAgent huntersmommy
