Join us as we feature two novelistic debuts of lives that have taken a wrong turn. In Jennifer Gooch Hummer’s Girl Unmoored, a young girl named Apron is saved by Jesus—or rather, the actor who plays him in Jesus Christ Superstar—and his boyfriend Chad when they give her a job in their floral shop. But when she begins to learn secrets about Chad, she has to fight to keep her new family in safe harbors. In Susan Senator’s new novel, Dirt, suburban mother Emmy is at the end of her tether trying to keep her three sons in control and find time for herself and her garden. When a flirtation, a brush with the law, and a near-tragedy combine, can she salvage her sanity, or has she failed at adulthood once and for all?
