… twelve year old CeeCee Honeycutt? The star of Beth Hoffman’s Saving CeeCee Honeycutt has been taking care of her mom forever. Her mom still thinks she’s the 1951 Vidalia Onion Queen and carries her tiara around with her. You might say she’s lost her grip on reality.
When CeeCee’s mom is hit by an ice cream truck, she’s sent to her great Aunt Tootie in Savannah, GA. Aunt Tootie is rich, eccentric, very wise, and lots of fun. As Aunt Tootie and CeeCee get to know each other, all of the quirkiness of the south shines through. With many friends who come and go from Tootie house, CeeCee learns life’s lessons. This book reminded me a little bit of Steel Magnolias. It’s a fast read and very hard to put down and hard to forget.
