Overview

From New York Times bestselling novelist Joshilyn Jackson comes an e-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 seventeen 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?

A sweet prequel to SOMEONE ELSE'S LOVE STORY Shandi was just seventeen when she found out she was pregnant. Now, just a few short years later, she's still learning to be a mom to her son Natty. With the support of her own mother and her best friend Walcott, things have worked out ok and Shandi even has plans for a college degree. But a chance encounter at the local blood drive causes her to have to reevaluate everything she thought she knew about being a parent. Shandi and Natty are characters in SOMEONE ELSE'S LOVE STORY. so MY OWN MIRACULOUS served not only as an introduction to Jackson's work for me but a taste of what's to come in SOMEONE ELSE'S LOVE STORY. I can't wait to get to the book. Shandi, Natty, Walcott, and all of the others have already captured my heart completely!
