Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
by Beth Hoffman
fiction
From The Jacket: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 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.
I loved this book. It was filled with southern charm and endearing characters.
