Jennifer Gooch Hummerabout this book: GIRL UNMOORED, by the award-winning author Jennifer Gooch Hummer, is a coming-of-age novel about a young girl who is saved by Jesus. Ok, not that Jesus… the actor who plays him in Jesus Christ Superstar. It's the mid-80's and Apron Bramhall, 13, is bullied by her stepmother, dumped by her best friend, and ignored by her father. Six months ago, when her mother was still alive, none of this might have mattered quite so much. But now, without anyone else to guide her, Apron is drowning - until she meets Mike. Mike and his boyfriend, Chad, know exactly what it means to be hated. They're gay and homophobia is rampant in their small Maine town. But Apron befriends them anyway and what follows is a friendship that saves them all – even though one of them will soon fall powerless against a new deadly disease called AIDS.
