In My Mailbox is a post where I tell you the books that I received this week either by buying them from the bookstore, going to the library or from my mailbox. In My Mailbox was inspired by Alea and turned into a meme by Kristi.

Girl Unmoored by Jennifer Gooch Hummer
Apron Bramhall has come unmoored. It's 1985 and her mom has passed away,
her evil stepmother is pregnant, and her best friend has traded her in
for a newer model. Fortunately, she's about to be saved by Jesus. Not that Jesus-the actor who plays him in Jesus Christ, Superstar.
Apron is desperate to avoid the look-alike Mike (no one should look
that much like Jesus unless they can perform a miracle or two), but
suddenly he's everywhere. Until one day, she's stuck in church with
him-of all places. And then something happens; Apron's broken teenage
heart blinks on for the first time since she's been adrift.
Mike and his grumpy boyfriend, Chad, offer her a summer job in their
flower store. With the sweet smells and creative arranging of bouquets,
Apron's world seems to calm. But when she uncovers 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.
