A sweet, coming of age story that leaves a good taste.

In this easy-to-read book, young Cee Cee Honeycutt has become her mother’s keeper and in doing so, Cee Cee has become socially awkward and outcast. Cee Cee turns to reading as her escape and dives headlong into her books.

When an unfortunate accident leaves Cee Cee alone, her great-aunt, Tootie, comes from Savannah, Georgia to take Cee Cee in. A reluctant Cee Cee comes to love Tootie and rely on Odette, Miss Tootie’s cook.

Set in a time where color divided people, Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt shows how love and empathy can heal wounds and save people.

I enjoyed this book, even though it felt a bit like a version of The Secret Life of Bees, it, like the Bees, is worth the read.

Audiobook edition, read by Jenna Lamia. This was overall an enjoyable story. The author is terrific at creating vivid characters and settings, and Jenna Lamia's reading is as fantastic as always. But the story itself felt too scattered, as though it is a series of events that the characters experience and react to, rather than a coherent plot. The resolution to each event felt unfinished and a little unreal, and the story overall was a little too syrupy for my taste.

A well done book. I know it seems like Southern Lit is a popular genre right now but it is books like this that make it so. No strong male figures and I do wish there had been atleast one. However, the women in this story hold up the story with great beauty. I can see this book being made into a movie.
