I tend to pick up books that are set in the south. I guess I find them relateable. In Beth Hoffman's book, Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt, you will find Steel Magnolias meets The Help in this Southern debut novel sparkling with humor, heart, and feminine wisdom. Author, Hoffman's debut, a by-the-numbers Southern charmer, recounts 12-year-old Cecelia Rose Honeycutt's recovery from a childhood with her crazy mother, Camille, and cantankerous father, Carl, in 1960s Willoughby, Ohio.
After former Southern beauty queen Camille is struck and killed by an ice cream truck, Carl hands over Cecelia to her great-aunt Tootie. Whisked off to a life of privilege in Savannah, Ga., Cecelia makes fast friends with Tootie's cook, Oletta, and gets to know the cadre of eccentric women who flit in and out of Tootie's house.
