Waiting on Wednesday

Post your own WOW entry on your blog, and leave your link at Breaking the Spine. Here's what caught my eye recently.....just look at this cover....


Grand Central Publishing
January 2012

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.

  4. Sounds interesting. I love stories that focus on different generations within a family. The reader can really get to know all sides and how a family came to be who they are presently. Great find!
