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.

This story was excellent! The well-reached nature of Jody Picoult and the sentimental romance of Nicholas Sparks. That being said, this author is a one hit wonder, her second book ‘Reunion’ is HORRIBLE!! It is sooooooooooooo extremely boring I’m shocked I bothered to finish it (call it Go-Train commuter desperation). She introduces like a dozen characters right at the beginning most of which start with the letter ‘M’ and the plot never goes anywhere, no emotion and the ending is dull. It basically has the well thought out nature of a 4th grade project so enjoy this book ‘Survivor’ because the good reading stops there.
