pretty babyWeek of August 3: Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica
Heidi Wood has always been a charitable woman: she works for a nonprofit, takes in stray cats. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young woman named Willow and her four-month-old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal—or worse. But despite her family’s objections, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home.

 My Thoughts: 
So this is might not be a shocker that I love this books. yes this book has been raved about so much and what can I say but this book is totally me. I first saw the book on Shelf Awareness and I was happy that they also had it for the Summer Reading Challenge. This book by Mary was soo good. Heidi was a good character but at times she did annoy be but the power of the writing style shunned away the bad or negativity. This book was also a bit sad and had me to tear up. It's hard to survive along with taking care of yourself and a child. I have never been homeless but have seen people around me that struggle with it when money isn't there. Mary also mad the story realistic but not having a good outcome when you read the book because life isn't sunshines and happy endings but you do have to go threw some things in order to make you a stronger person and overcome the biggest or smallest things life has to throw at you.
