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

Praise for A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty:

"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. - PW

"A valentine to the bonds of family!" - Family Circle

[There are] hundreds of moving parts in the machinery of Jackson's intricate mystery, all deliciously unraveled one tantalizing clue at a time. - Gina Webb, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"[A] warm family story that teeters between emotional highs and lows, laughter and tears. Book groups will eat this up." - Library Journal

Jackson's signature style-the feisty, bighearted voice of Gods in Alabama and Backseat Saints-propels this funny, dark whodunit, where strong women who've made bad choices band together to come out on top. - Melissa Ruggieri, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"A deeply felt, engaging story." - The Atlantic

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