A Grown-Up Kind Of Pretty Summary

A Grown-Up Kind Of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson

Every fifteen years, trouble comes after the Slocumb women. Now, as their youngest turns fifteen, a whole new kind of commotion is chasing all three generations. Mosey's desperate to know who used their yard as a make-shift cemetery, and why. The oldest, forty-five year old Ginny, fights to protect Mosey from the truth, a fight that could cost Ginny the love of her life. Between them is Liza, silenced by a stroke, with the answers trapped inside her. To survive Liza's secrets and Mosey's insistent adventures, Ginny must learn to trust the love that braids the strands of their past--and stop at nothing to defend their future.

A Grown-Up Kind Of Pretty Reviews

A mesmerizing tale of a family coping with the revelation of a secret that will change their lives... Jackson's most absorbing book yet, a lush, rich read with three very different but equally compelling characters at its core. - Kristine Huntley, Booklist (Starred Review)

Highly immersive...a compelling page turner. - Publishers Weekly

Liza, as the unreliable narrator, is used to perfection in this warm family story that teeters between emotional highs and lows, laughter and tears. Book groups will eat this up. - Library Journal

Snappy dialogue with a Southern twang, spiritual uplift and undeniably likable characters. - Kirkus Reviews

A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty proves again that Joshilyn Jackson is one the best writers of the new generation. This spellbinding novel unfolds through the voices of three women in one family: a grandmother, a mother, a young daughter. Jackson renders each of these women with vivid tenderness, ferocity, and great humor, so that the family itself becomes the fourth vital character in the story. You will find yourself rooting for them all, to the very last page. - Mark Childress, author of Georgia Bottoms and Crazy in Alabama

Reading A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty feels a lot like falling in love: giddy and enthralling and a little bit dangerous. It's a heart-thumping mystery, an edge-of-your-seat drama, and a fiercely sweet comedy all at onc
