The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes

The Secret Life Of CeeCee Wilkes The Secret Life Of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain

My review

Had this not been a book club choice, I probably would not have read it. Page turner, entertaining, interesting – but unsatisfying in the end.

CeeCee Wilkes never knew her father, but she was very close to her mother. So close that she watched her die after a long bout of cancer and became an orphan at the age of 12. After a series of foster homes, she graduated highschool at age 16 and became in the eyes of the system, an independent adult. Enter a suave, 22 year old named Tim…instant love. CeeCee makes a series of mistakes which can’t be undone, can’t be repaired and her life changes completely. How she reacts, how it affects her world almost 30 years later is what the book is about.

I wasn’t too happy with the ending, I felt it the last few chapters were too abrupt and changes of heart were written in too quickly.

All in all a fast interesting read, which I think will make for a decent club discussion
