My Own Miraculous: A Short Story

Shandi Pierce got pregnant when she was only 17 years old. She fell for her son - deeply, instantly, completely - but as she sat at the table feeding him, her own mother was sliding eggs and bacon onto her plate, feeding her. Now, four years later, Shandi is still more parented than parent. She lives with her mom, her dad pays her bills, and her best friend, Walcott, acts as her white knight. But Natty is no ordinary kid, and when his savant behavior catches the attention of an obsessive stranger, only Shandi sees the true menace.

Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling novelist Joshilyn Jackson comes an original short story that gives a fierce and funny character from Someone Else's Love Story a standalone adventure all her own.

Shandi Pierce got pregnant when she was only 17 years old. She fell for her son - deeply, instantly, completely - but as she sat at the table feeding him, her own mother was sliding eggs and bacon onto her plate, feeding her.

Now, four years later, Shandi is still more parented than parent. She lives with her mom, her dad pays her bills, and her best friend, Walcott, acts as her white knight. But Natty is no ordinary kid, and when his savant behavior catches the attention of an obsessive stranger, only Shandi sees the true menace.

To protect her son, Shandi must grow up - fast - and find an answer to the question, how can a girl remake herself into a mother?

    "Can't wait for my Pre-order"

    What a treat to have a snack sized Joshilyn Jackson offering to introduce her newest loveably quirky southern family. As with all of her books, there is humor within the trials of life, and the solid strength that surprises not only the reader, but sometimes the characters themselves. Jackson has proved herself an astute observer of southern behavior and language to continually create characters that are not only believable, but ones I would love to befriend. Now I just have to wait 12 more days before I can get to know the rest of this story.

    Story
    "Amazing"

    This short story leaves no questions. What a pleasant little read. Well developed, defined characters are found in the prequel to Someone Else's Love Story. A young mom who finds herself a mother the moment she realizes that her brilliant son is hers to fight for and protect. A best friend who is every bit a father figure to a son who has no dna in common. A grandmother who has taken on the parenting of a grandchild until her daughter became his mother. Take a couple hours and get to know the Pearce family. You won't regret it.

    "Darling Short Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this charming story. It was great as a stand-alone book, but even better as the prequel to Someone Else's Love Story, which I recommend so so highly! Such interesting and complex characters!


    Any additional comments?

    Any thing Joshilyn Jackson writes is a must-buy in my world! You can always count on her stories to be unpredictable, deep, interesting reads with great characters! Way to go, Joshilyn, from a long time Kudzu BB!
