I was so ready to read an uplifting book after some very dark and depressing ones. This book fit the bill. It starts out detailing the very tough circumstances a young girl is forced to deal with in a family with a mentally ill mother and absent dad. When CeeCee is sent to live with a wonderful relative and comes in contact with that woman's African-American cook, life improves dramatically. Insights into the tensions that still remain in Southern culture were interesting. The wisdom imparted by the new adults in CeeCee's life are heartwarming. And the ending is very satisfying. The author writes in an appealing style, with wit. I really hope I can get my almost 17-year old granddaughter to read this during the summer.
