A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty

A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty - Joshilyn Jackson I really enjoy southern fiction and was looking forward to A Grown-up kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson.

Having read and loved Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe I am always scouting for a southern read to draw me in just like that book did.

The plot for A grown up kind of pretty really gets you thinking.

"When a long hidden grave is unearthed in the backyard of the Slocumb home, headstrong Mosey Slocumb is determined to investigate. What she learns could cost her family everything"

I loved the characters and enjoyed the voices of the three Slocumb women in this novel.

While I enjoyed the read the story did not emotionally draw me in and is not really a book that had a big impact on me but it is a nice summer read.
