Okay, Readers. I can see the local AMC marquee now — “SAVING CEECEE HONEYCUTT” in scrolling big caps — and, suitably, it’s only a matter of time before Warner Brothers, Imagine, Touchstone, or maybe Castle Rock see the possibilities and potential of this hugely adored novel readers have fallen in love with.
I hope there will be a day when this amazing book’s enlightening quotes, soul-inspiring words of wisdom, and beautifully developed characters are gathered from the pages and placed before our eyes in a blockbustering delightful and heartfelt movie. I can foresee the talented cast. I can hear the whirlwind of emotions voiced by the delicately sweet and blooming, yet painfully innocent, book-loving 12-year-old storyteller. And there I will be, front and center.
Inside the classy and metaphorically graced hummingbird hardback cover of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt are 306 pages of “saving” grace. With chapters so wonderfully satisfying and emotionally fulfilling, I lost myself, in the best possible way, within this book and found my heart savoring the power of love, beauty of life, and the prominence of God radiating throughout. Read this story.
From one motherless daughter to another, thank you, Cecelia Rose Honeycutt, for saving a little piece of me.
