very good book, enjoyed the author's 'voice'. ( )

My rating for this book is 4.5 stars

This is my first book by Joshilyn Jackson and to be honest, I had not really heard of her prior to grabbing this book. However, the title, cover, and brief overview of the book seemed interesting enough, so I thought I'd give it a go. I sure am glad that I did!

I can get distracted easy, so for a book to really capture me, it's got to be good. A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty not only captured my attention but left me thinking about the characters long after the story was over. When you reminisce about the characters, you know you have something special.

At first, I wasn't really too sure where the story was going but I have to say, I loved how it was written. The mystery of the baby bones in the backyard leaves you curious and sad all at once and the deeper I got in to the book and the search for the truth, the more I loved where it was going.

Written in three POVs, each of the three Slocumb ladies had their own style of telling their piece of the story and each was incredibly believable. Big, Liza, and Mosey are all special in their own right, even if you do not see the depth of each one straight away. I love that we get to see the strengths and vulnerabilities of each lady throughout the story.

I enjoyed this book greatly and I look forward to checking out more titles by Joshilyn Jackson. ( )

I loved this book. It was the first book I read with my new Book Club Girls. This book is about strong women!!Big is big and strong and loving and will do anything to protect her girls. Shes been on her own all her life but doesnt let that fact keep her from being a great mother. Liza (Little) is strong in her weaknesses. Throughout the story she is fighting her way back to the world, first from the pull of drugs and the street and then from a debilitating stroke. And Mosey is strong in her capacity for love and her need to keep her "real family" intact but still curious enough to want to find out who she really is. This was a great read full of witty language and quotes. Some even made me laugh out loud!! Im going to have to go back through and underline my favorites in my copy. ( )

Excellent. Her best book yet. Once I started, I couldn't put it down and stayed up way too late last night to finish it. Definitely a keeper. ( )
