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.
