CeeCee Honeycutt has easily become my favorite book of the summer, thus far. It is packed full of my favorite things--a charming southern atmosphere, a coming-of-age narrator, strong female characters, sweet summertime, hilarious and eccentric adventures, and wisdom for all ages.

I wish my words could do this book the justice it more than deserves. However, my few meager words here will have to suffice. This book is a prime example of southern fiction and goes to show just why I love it so much--from its down-home, cozy feel to its sweet joy at the simple things in life.

CeeCee has not had an easy life and my heart first continuously broke for her and then soared as I followed her through her adventures in Savannah, Georgia. This is a feel-good story that left me, for one, with a big, dopey grin on my face. This is one that I need to get for my own shelves! Highly recommended for fans of The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd or Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells.
