Jackson ("Gods in Alabama") delivers a novel that follows a young woman's search for the truth about who her mother really is.
From the Publisher
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.
