    I adore this style of writing, dripping with deep southern charm set in the summer of 1967 Savannah, Georgia What a sparkling gem of a debut for Hoffman I m gonna have to compare this book a little because of the age of the main character to Secret Life of Bee s with a 12 year old girl named CeeCee living in Ohio, with her tender heart in shambles after the passing of he...

    I cried real tears at parts of this lovely story of young CeeCee Honeycutt, a little girl who suffers unimaginable loss at the hands of a mentally ill mother and unsympathetic father But like the spider web trapped hummingbird rescued in Chapt 27 by pulling the stickiest strings free of the bird s delicate wings, a community of concerned women carries out a similar attempt for CeeCee In both cases, a wounded creature is allowed to enjoy the life it should I loved this book that climbs from I cried real tears at parts of this lovely story of young CeeCee Honeycutt, a little girl who suffers unimaginable loss at the hands of a mentally ill mother and unsympathetic father But like the spider web trapped hummingbird rescued in Chapt 27 by pulling the stickiest strings free of the bird s delicate wings, a community of concerned women carries out a similar attempt for C...

    This is a review of the audiobook This was charmingly narrated by Jenna Lamia who convincingly sounds not only like an intelligent, forlorn little 12 year old girl, but the many moods of CeeCee herself worry, happiness, embarrassment, guilt, wonder, revenge, fear, grief, sadness, humor, forgiveness, and delight Ms Lamia performs the various accents, Northern and Southern, female a...
