SCAVENGER HUNT POST:
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, 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.

Fan Casting for Girl Unmoored
Apron Bramhall: Landry Bender. Landry is all set to star as Apron Bramhall. I wrote the screenplay with her in mind. She’s adorable and smart and funny, just like Apron. She’ll need a red wig, of course, and she’ll look just as lovely as she does in real life.
Mike Weller: Nicholas Hoult. He was the boy in About a Boy. Have you seen those blue eyes? They’re blueberry eyes, as Apron would say. He’s the perfect Mike.
Chad Weller: Chris Colfer. He can dance and he can sing and he would be the perfect Chad. No one was better in Glee than he, am I right?
M (Margie): Michelle Rodriguez. She was in the Fast and The Furious. Need I say more? She’s probably not scary in real life, but she can definitely act it. (Kathleen here — Oh yes, very versatile actress. I think I’ve probably seen Fast and Furious at least 8 times. Maybe less, maybe more.)
Grandma Bramhall: Shirley MacLaine: I literally love Shirley MacLaine. I factor in a role for her in all of my books. She will go down in history as one of the all-time best actresses.
Dennis Bramhall: Ewan McGregor. When I wrote the book, I had Ewan McGregor in mind as Mike. Now though, I think he’s better suited to play the mercurial Dennis, Apron’s father.
Julie would love to who your dream cast would be!
