A Grown-up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson

A dramatic story of a grandmother, mother and daughter – three generations of women struggling to keep their family together

A Grown-up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson

A mother at 15 and a grandmother at 30, 45-year-old Ginny Slocumb understandably worries that this, the year her granddaughter Mosey turns 15, will be another “trouble year.” Little does she know, teen pregnancy will be the least of her worries. Sweet tea and long, slow southern drawls set the tone for this charming drama in which old family secrets and new mysteries come to light.
