About the Author

Born in Seattle, WA and raised & living in southern California with her husband Denny, and their three wonderful, miniature, long-haired dachshund's, Gryphon, Phoenix and Elsa, LK Gardner-Griffie is definitely a west coast girl, but loves to travel. The love of writing and travel were fostered very young by reading Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and deciding that she and Jo had a great deal in common. While she didn't have 3 sisters, and a father absentee in the war, the making up of stories, dramatic feelings, and a quick temper were enough for LK to know that she and Jo would have been kindred spirits. LK Gardner-Griffie started writing her first, never to be published, novel at the ripe old age of 9. She believes in that magic nation of imagination, and in everything sees the story lurking beneath the surface. Outside the world of writing, LK loves her pups, listening to music and even more, singing. Country music is her favored genre (because that's what she sings). She and her husband Denny are strong supporters of Cal State Fullerton Baseball (Go Titans!) and they thoroughly enjoy supporting their nieces and nephews in their sport and music related endeavors. After having spent time working in a variety of jobs, such as retail sales, insurance, throwing papers for the LA Times, pre-school teacher, and a brief, but memorable stint at a gas station, LK currently works for an international shipping company in the capacity of business, process, system support manager. She has decided it is time to carve out time for writing as there are several more projects that she has in the works, as well as those that are still just a glimmer in her mind.

More About the Author

LK Gardner-Griffie is a two-time teen choice award winning author for her Misfit McCabe series. Daughter to a rocket scientist and an artist, LK combines the traits of both into a quirky yet pragmatic writer. In addition to writing, LK holds down a full-time job with an international transportation company as a process and efficiency expert. Her leisure time is spent with her husband sharing a love of music, singing, and college baseball. She writes into the night with the help of her three long-haired miniature dachshunds. Night is when imagination takes flight.

Review: L.K. Gardner-Griffie is a profound writer that knows teenagers so well! Both of her novels address very real issues of teenagers today and her heroine, Katie McCabe is fantastic. These books make for a great read for youngsters 14 and older. Both, Pearson Prize, Teen Choice Award winners they are by far some of the best, realistic teen novels I have read.

This is a wonderful 3 books series. It is fabulous for teenagers cause many of them feel that there isn't any place for them especially if they have to go live with relatives or strangers or they can feel like they are strangers in their own home with their own parents. My 13 year old granddaugher read the 1st book and called me to order the 2nd book for her which I did. I read it first like I did the other. This book is a must read from teen to adult. My granddaugher read the book 2x's what does that tell you. Linda Meckler, author

My daughter and I loved Misfit McCabe, the first book in this series, so we couldn't wait to read this book-- we weren't disappointed!

Nowhere Feels Like Home picks up where Misfit McCabe left off, although if you haven't read Misfit McCabe the journal entry in the beginning brings you up to speed. Katie is stuck in bed with a broken ankle and is still dealing with the recent death of her father as well as the trauma of her accident, caused by her nemesis Harvey, Jr.

While the first book focused entirely on Katie, this book tells more of Sarah's story. Katie's boyfriend Tom plays a larger roll in this book which causes Sarah some protective concern. Sarah relates her own high school boyfriend experience and how protective their cousins, Matt and Mark, were of her. At one point, Sarah gives Katie "the talk" which is handled in a mature and tasteful way. My 12 year old daughter and I have already had a few "talks" but this delved more into kissing, feeling and emotions. It was a great conversation bridge into those topics.

Timmy, Katie's best friend from her old home town, shows up and makes Katie reexamine her situation and her new family. Where is her home?

Julia and I loved this book and anxiously await book #3! (Team Rusty! We going to make t shirts!)
