Nonny Frett understands the meanings of "rock" and "hard place" better than any woman ever born. She's got two mothers, "one deaf-blind and the other four baby steps from flat crazy". She's got two men: her husband, who's easing out the back door; and her best friend, who's laying siege to her heart in her front yard. She has a job that holds her in the city, and she's addicted to a little girl who's stuck deep in the country. To top it off, she has two families: the Fretts, who stole her and raised her right; and the Crabtrees, who lost her and can't forget that they've been done wrong.
In Between, Georgia, population 90, a feud that began the night Nonny was born is escalating, and a random act of violence will set the torch to a 30-year-old stash of highly flammable secrets. This might be just what the town needs, if only Nonny wasn't sitting in the middle of it.

I cannot say enough good things about Between, Georgia and Joshilyn Jackson. The characters are unique and strong, and they belong to a story incredibly funny and intense and delicate and powerful - I couldn't tell where my life stopped and Nonny's began for a while there. Read it or listen to it or shoot it straight into your veins but do it IMMEDIATELY.
This book kept my attention and I loved the character's voices! Being from the South, I felt at "home" . Highly recommend!
I was so taken by Jackson's writing. I've since listened to all three provided on Itunes and I love her narrration; I lose myself in the story. Can't wait for the next.
