Staff Reviews

This charming book (appealing to The Secret Life of Bees readers) is like a warm hug.  Motherless CeeCee’s fabulous great aunt whisks her away to Savannah, where she heals under the care of Aunt Tootie and her band of quirky friends and makes peace with the parents she didn’t have.  Very feel good.

Summer '11 Reading Group List

“Saving CeeCee Honeycutt is a story quilted with the patterns of vibrant characters whose lives become intricately connected to the emotional healing of 12-year- old CeeCee. Beth Hoffman's first novel is a tribute to the strength of women who have survived tragedy and loss to become beacons for others who suffer from emotional scars. I couldn't put it down, and book group members will be richer for having read CeeCee's story.”

For years, twelve-year-old CeeCee Honeycutt has been the caretaker of her psychotic mother, Camille. The tiara-toting, lipstick-smeared laughingstock of an entire town, Camille was a woman trapped in her long-ago moment of glory as the 1951 Vidalia Onion Queen. But when she is hit by a truck and killed, CeeCee is left to fend for herself. To the rescue comes her previously unknown great-aunt Tootie in her vintage Packard convertible.
