Grown Up Kind Of Pretty
by Joshilyn Jackson Monday August 7 7:00 pm
Mosey Slocumb is terrified that something bad is going to happen to her. As a young woman in the Slocumb family, she has good reason to be afraid. Every 15 years, something bad happens to one of the Slocumb women. Mosey's mother, Liza, got pregnant with Mosey when she was just 15, and Mosey's grandmother Ginny gave birth to Liza when she was 15. Now Mosey herself is 15 and panicked that she is next. When the Slocumb family curse does resurface, it comes in the form of a stroke that leaves Liza disabled and unable to speak. When Ginny decides to build a pool to help Liza with her rehabilitation, the backyard excavation turns up something unexpected: a small pile of bones and old baby clothes. The only person that seems to know the origin of the remains is Liza, but since her condition prevents her from talking about it, Mosey and Ginny are left to investigate the mystery themselves and uncover the truth about their family [Books & Authors]
