I really enjoyed this book. I actually listened to it through Audible and the reader was very good. It was told from the perspective of Cee Cee Honeycutt who is 12 years old. Overall just a good feel good story! ( )

Delightful is what comes to mind when I think of this book. It tells the story of Cee Cee, who is taken in by her great aunt from Savannah after her mentally unstable mother dies. Cee Cee has never met her great aunt Tootie before, but she soon becomes pleasantly surprised by the warmth that Tootie, her housekeeper, and a myriad of Southern neighbors pour onto her. Cee Cee has a few bumps along the way as she adjusts to her new community - and learns a few things about her past history - but all in all it is delightful to enter the world of this book and see how she turns out in the end.

Finished the book in about two days. It was fun sharing CeeCee's wide eyes wonderment and discoveries. Beth did a good job at capturing self doubt and internal critic that lives in all of us. If we are lucky we would have women in our life similar to those that came to CeeCee's rescue. ( )

This book is proof that all of our freshman English teachers were wrong: there actually is such a thing as too many metaphors and similes, and this book reached critical mass on nearly every page. It's entirely probably that the most often used words in this book are "like" and "as if".

It is described here in some marketing material as Steel Magnolias meets The Help. Not even close, although it seems to borrow heavily little details from both of those. (Up to and including the chocolate pie from The Help.)

It is also listed as adult fiction, and I disagree with that as well. This is more of a YA book and written on that level. There were many, many chances to delve into something of substance in this coming-of-age story, but the author chose instead to resort to shallow tropes, homilies, and pancreatitis-inducing amounts of marshmallow fluff. The end result is that this reads like any one of a dozen other forgettable books set in a certain time frame in the south. ( )

Saving CeeCee Honeycut ((Beth Hoffman)

Set in the 60's Cecilia (CeeCee) Honeycut just wants to be an ordinary girl. Living in Ohio with her mother and father, she is not sure what normal is. Her mother is mentally unstable, while her traveling salesman father is never home. CeeCee seems to be the mother as she watches over and takes care of her "crazy" mother. Then one day, unexpectedly her mother dies. Soon CeeCee finds herself in another world when her great Aunt Tootie, comes to take her to Georgia, to live with her.

Saving CeeCee Honeycut, was a wonderful (emotional) read. Well written Ms. Hoffman grabs the readers attention and won't let go until the perfect ending. Colorful unforgettable characters, laugh out loud, moments, a perfect coming of age story. I look forward to more work from Beth Hoffman.

I made a mental note that if I ever needed help from a man I would make him a pie. I wondered if that's why my dad didn't come home much anymore. As far as I knew, Momma never once had baked him a pie.
The truth fell on me like a piano. Though I had no idea what lay ahead, there was one thing I knew for sure: wherever I was going, it had to be better than where I was.
