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.

YEAAAAAHHHH CeeCee!!!!This is one of those feel good books, that even though it is written from the perspective of a 12 year old even a 39 year old can relate. I think I started cheering for CeeCee from the beginning. Even though her circumstances could have hardened her and also driven her crazy she grew and blossomed and you know her future was indeed bright.

Hope-filled and BeautifulBeth Hoffman's SAVING CEECEE HONEYCUTT: A charming peek into one girl's summer as she recovers from a painful tragedy and ends up finding her heart and a home. Throughout the first part of the book, as the reader sees CeeCee's mother's psychosis through CeeCee's eyes, we experience heartbreak for a twelve-year-old girl who simply wants to be normal. After her mother dies and her father coldly lets her go, CeeCee goes to live with her great-aunt in an idyllic town in Georgia. Through her interactions, she works through the various emotions surrounding the tragedy, and, as the reader, I found myself healing along with CeeCee. I highly recommend this coming-of-age novel, for its vivid glimpse at a life healing from tremendous pain, and at the hope found in ordinary summer days in a home filled with love..Score: 5/5

Saving CeeCee HoneycuttWhat a truly happy, sad, funny novel of courage and hope. As a child of a woman who suffered from much the same mental illness as Camille, I related to the confused mother/daughter love she had for her mama.
