A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson

15
Ok, I have admittedly been in a book slump lately, so I probably can't fairly judge this one!  It was the first book in a long time that had me thinking about it when I wasn't reading!!  Yay!  I don't think it is a "must read" but this author is a fun, light read.  I would give it 3.5 out of 5 rating.

Summary from goodreads.com:
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.
