'A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty' by Joshilyn Jackson

A Grown-Up Kind of PrettyMay's Book Club selection is A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty by New York Times-bestselling author Joshilyn Jackson. A saga of three generations of women, whose lives are changed forever by a devastating secret, this one-part mystery, one-part comedy is a page-turner you will never forget.

When a small grave is discovered in their backyard, 15-year-old Mosey Slocumb becomes determined to find out why. Mosey's mother, haunted by her own teenage demons, struggles to keep the past where she left it: behind her. But Mosey wants answers and she will have to learn that while on the cusp of womanhood, innocence can be gained and lost.

Join us on May 22 at 6:30 p.m. as we discuss what Sara Gruen, New York Times-bestselling author of Water for Elephants, calls "a heart-thumping mystery, an edge-of-your-seat drama, and a fiercely sweet comedy all at once, with a fistful of crazy-brave characters who reach from up the wild pages and grip your heart."
