Book Review of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
duskblue avatar reviewed on

I received this book from a relative who loved it, however I struggled through it. The plot is fine, however the author distracts us from the current moment but incessant flashbacks about random characters that really aren't that interesting. It was a jarring read from front to back, and I found it difficult to be interested in the plot because the author was always taking me out of the moment and telling me to pay attention to some random tidbit instead. This book has turned me off to all books with flashbacks.

If you enjoy slow plots with lots of stories that don't contribute to the main story, then you might like this book. Someone compared this to To Kill A Mockingbird? Well, they're both set in the south and told from the POV of a young girl, but other than that, the similarities end.
