CeeCee Honeycutt has had a tough life in her 12 years she had a father who travels alot and leaves her home alone with her mentally ill mother. Her mother doesn't beat her or anything however she thinks she's back in 1951 when she was the Vidalia Onion Queen she parades around town in prom dresses and her tiara and can't be pulled back into the present no matter how hard CeeCee tries.
As events unfold CeeCee ends up living with her Great Aunt Tootie in Savannah, which is where she begins to heal from her past.
This is a story of love, loss, forgiveness, friendship and strong women. We watch as CeeCee comes to grips with her past and finally allows people in on what she has been through with her mother.
I loved this book Beth Hoffman brings these characters to life you end up loving them all. If you loved The Help you’ll love CeeCee.
I highly recommend this book definitely a must read!
The above review is from Feb. 2010 it is now Feb 2012 and I have re-read this book and loved it just as much as I did the first time. I listened to it on audio this time narrated by, Jenna Lamia who as always does a fantastic job at the narration.
The characters in the book stay with you so long after you're done reading I read this 2 years ago and it felt like catching up with my old friends Oletta & Mrs. Odell and of course CeeCee. I just loved it all over again! I am so glad these characters are in my life book!
Definitely still 5 stars and still on my favorites list
Because everyone knows this story whether from reading it or seeing one of the 100's of movies based on this book I will just be reviewing the audiobook version I listened to narrated by, Tim Curry. I must admit to being a huge Tim Curry fan I will watch anything if he has a role in it so when I found this audiobook at audible I had to get it. I was not disappointed!
Tim Curry’s narration is absolute perfection ‘nuff said!
