A Grown-up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson
A GROWN-UP KIND OF PRETTY is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it’s there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey’s strong and big-hearted grandmother, whose maternal love braids together the strands of the women’s shared past–and who will stop at nothing to defend their future.
My Review: 5 out of 5. This is the 2nd book that I’ve read from Joshilyn Jackson (the first being Someone Else’s Love Story). This one was such a good read! The story was so compelling. The mystery was so compelling. I really enjoyed have 3 different points of view in this book (Mosey, Big and Liza). Fabulous read! I highly recommend!!
