Overview

Set in a small island town on the Texas coastal bend, CeeGee's Gift takes readers to a simpler time, when neighbors sat on front porches, kids took off on bikes all day, and the library was the gathering place for all ages. Twelve-year-old Celia Gene Williamson and her friend, old Mr. Tindale, work together to transform her ability to foretell the future into a gift for others--a chance for the people of Southport to prepare for what is to come, or even change their direction and change the future.

From Author's Reading: CeeGee's Gift by Joy H. Selak is an intergenerational novel that involves the reader, regardless of age, in the mysterious life of a 12 year old girl. Celia Gene, called CeeGee, is an introspective, shy young girl who struggles with an unexplained ability to know the future. She foresees elderly Mr. Tindale impending death, and reluctantly tells him. He recognizes the inevitable and helps her understand her Knowings as a gift. He encourages her to share her insight from her heart as a gift to help people change the direction of their lives. As Mr. Tindale says, if people could see where they were headed, maybe they would decide to change direction and change their entire future . The author uses the atmosphere of a small town community and its inhabitants as a medium for CeeGee to explore and share her gift. The reader will also be encouraged to explore his own gifts and to seek out ways to use those gifts to benefit others. Readers of all ages will be challenged and inspired by this amazing novel.
