Joshilyn Jackson’s book A Grown Up Kind of Pretty is all at once a coming of age story, a mystery, a love
story, and a family drama. We meet Ginny, Liza and Mosey Slocumb, three
generations of women who have come to expect disaster every fifteen years.
Ginny gave birth to her daughter Liza when she was fifteen and found herself
estranged from her parents, friends and entire town. She fled to Mississippi and
struggled to make a stable life for herself and her daughter. She thought she
had succeeded until her daughter, the beautiful and wild Liza, becomes pregnant
at fifteen. Now, fifteen years later, all eyes are on Liza’s daughter, Mosey.
In small town Mississippi everyone knows everyone’s business and everyone wants
to know if Mosey will follow in her mothers and grandmother’s footsteps. Mosey
is in many ways like Ginny and Liza, but she is also very different. Mosey is a young woman just finding out who
she is when old secrets are unearthed and threaten to change everything.
