To brighten up the middle of the week I’m spotlighting Girl Unmoored by Jennifer Gooch Hummer today! Girl Unmoored is a cross-over YA/women’s fiction novel that sounds so good and I can’t wait to have some time to fit it into my own reading schedule. In the meantime I’m going to share what the book is about with you as well as a bit on the author. Of course there is a giveaway at the end of the post so be sure to check it out for your chance to win a copy of Girl Unmoored.
Set in 1985 Maine, GIRL UNMOORED is about a young girl, Apron Bramhall, adrift in an emotional sea of chaos. Her mother has died, her father is about to marry a wicked witch and her best friend has dumped her for a newer model. Then she meets “Jesus”—the actor who plays him in Jesus Christ Superstar—and his boyfriend, Chad. They offer her a summer job in their flower shop. When Apron discovers Chad’s secret, coming of age becomes almost too much to bear. She’s forced to see things the adults around her fail to—like what love really means and who is paying too much for it.
