Saving Ceecee Honeycutt | [Beth Hoffman]

Saving Ceecee Honeycutt

Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

Publisher's Summary

Steel Magnolias meets The Help in this Southern debut novel sparkling with humor, heart, and feminine wisdom.

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

In her vintage Packard convertible, Tootie whisks CeeCee away to Savannah's perfumed world of prosperity and Southern eccentricity, a world that seems to be run entirely by women. From the exotic Miz Thelma Rae Goodpepper, who bathes in her backyard bathtub and uses garden slugs as her secret weapons, to Tootie's all-knowing housekeeper, Oletta Jones, to Violene Hobbs, who entertains a local police officer in her canary-yellow peignoir, the women of Gaston Street keep CeeCee entertained and enthralled for an entire summer.

Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    "Mediocre"

    Although I love Jenna Lamia's narration, this book was just OK for me. Another reviewer described it as fluffy and I agree. In all fairness, I did just finish reading The Help and I think I might be ruined for awhile after reading such a work of art. This book is decent but doesn't have much depth. I actually quit reading it after getting to the halfway point and losing interest.

    "Nice sweet book"

    If you have ever listened to anything narrated by Jenna Lamia, you already know how good she is. This is just a nice book, good story, and an easy listen.

    "charming"

    This is an engaging story from the first page. I loved the use of language and characters more than any other book in many years. An absolutely charming and hopeful story.

    "Saving CeeCee Honeycutt"

    I was taken by this book. It reminded me of The Help in a way . It is simply a good book for anyone- does have some southern accents.

    "Warm and Delightful"

    This is an excellent book for book study. Each woman that enters CeeCee's life influences in a positive way. The life lessons leared from each woman could bring about interesting helpful discussios. Enjoy and glean from each chapter.
