Saving CeeCee Honeycutt is by Beth Hoffman. Twelve-year-old CeeCee Honeycutt has lived with her crazy mother and mostly absent father in Ohio. Then her mother dies and her father hands her over to her Great-Aunt Tootie who lives in Savannah with her cook Oletta. CeeCee must find herself as she learns about life in 1960s Georgia with all its snobbery and racism. This story begins with promise that never really materializes. It is a cute story with more potential than actual substance.
