reviewed on + 39 more book reviews

This book is a fresh breath of air straight from the elegant, laid-back, charming South. Cecelia Rose (CeeCee) Honeycutt lives in Ohio with a mentally ill mother and a traveling salesman father whos never home. At the age of 12, she carries the weight of the family on her tiny shoulders. But, when an accident takes her mother and her father lets her move to Savannah, Ga., to live with her Great Aunt Tootie Caldwell, CeeCee will meet a covey of strong, southern women and blossom into a confident young girl who discovers her place in the world. Its a cute book and the story is told with humor and empathy.
