January 18th, WOW pick
Joining Jill at Breaking the Spine for her weekly Wednesday Meme..
Waiting on Wednesday were we post the books that we are patiently or not
so patiently looking for at the library or at the store.
I haven't read Joshilyn Jackson before but I saw this book in the new Family Circle magazine and thought it looked good.
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.
