          Tattered is the third novel in the heartwarming young adult series, Misfit McCabe. A little about the book:
          What do Sunday afternoon court proceedings, cheerleader tryouts, and a book burning have in common? Katie McCabe is back in action.
          After her nemesis Harvey is found guilty and sentenced to community service, Katie wants to believe her troubles are over, but Harvey wonít rest until he gets revenge. When blackmail rears its ugly head, sheís caught between friends and enemies putting her growing relationship with Tom at stake. Books go up in flames and Katieís world rains down in tatters.
          What next? Oh yeah... this is where LK usually goes on about how she met the host (Twitter)... blah, blah, blah.. and then she tells everyone I'm fourteen. I guess you could say that Jewelz and I met because of Twitter. I mean, if LK and her mamma hadn't met, then we probably wouldn't have met, but whatever. The main thing is that we're friends. She's into drama and sings and competes in forensics... all of which I think is totally cool. One of the reasons we got to be good friends is that we both lost our dads. So we can talk about how things feel sometimes. Anyway, on to today's topic... my cousin, Sarah.

          Sarah is absolutely gorgeous and makes me feel like I'm not put together quite right on most days. Not intentionally. But she just seems to have it all together most of the time, and I SOOO don't. It's kinda a weird thing, because she's a cousin... and I only got to know her recently, but she's also telling me what to do most of the time, 'cause Uncle Charley put her in charge. But... I don't know... sometimes I feel like she kinda takes the place of my mamma. I never really knew my mamma 'cause she died when I was so young. And Daddy would never talk to me about things like boys, but Sarah does. And I wonder sometimes, like when Sarah gives me a hug, if that is what it would have felt like if Mamma were still alive. So it was weird when Sarah said she was engaged to Jim, I felt like I was losing her before I even had her. They're not married yet. In fact, they haven't even picked a date yet. It was strange to feel happy and excited for her, but at the same time feel like I was losing another person in my life. Haven't I lost enough already?

          Whoa! Sorry Jewelz. I didn't mean to get so serious on you. I didn't think I would. I thought we'd take turns talking about how strict Sarah is and how unreasonable she can be. Cracking jokes, stuff like that. Oh and for those of you who don't know Sarah, deep down, I know she's not unreasonable... she just wants to keep me safe.
          Put the puzzle below together for part of the code to receive a free Misfit McCabe ebook. And make sure you visit Rhonda Cowsert on tomorrow's stop on the tour. And for all details on the tour, the prizes, and the stops, please visit Griffie World.

          Sarah sounds so loyal and protective, like a second mama. I can see how you would feel like you're losing her to another but I have a feeling Sarah isn't going anywhere.

          Fiery Na

          Iona Nicole said...

          You are so nice to Sarah! :) Love the post.

          Love this tour stop. Love the book!

          Eisley Jacobs said...

          I have some Sarah's in my life... great friends!

          Katie McCabe said...

          Gabi - Even though some days she irritates me, I don't know what I'd do without Sarah now.

          Thanks Na - I haven't said anything, but I really, really don't want her to go. I can't talk to Uncle Charley the same way.

          Iona *whispers* Sarah can ground me... I have to be nice. Ha ha ha... just kidding... kinda.

          Thanks Ellechim!!! I hope you read them all.

          Eisley - Sarah is a good friend, and if I'm being honest, I sometimes forget that, and then feel guilty.

          Sarah. I had to write it with an H! I thinks that is important. Anyways SaraH sounds like she is a good cousin.

          LK Gardner-Griffie said...

          Sarah is a good cousin. One who cares for Katie very much, Maddy.

          Love this post!

          Katie McCabe said...

          Thanks Ellie. She can get a little cranky sometimes, but I guess I've been something of a handful at times too. So I won't hold it against her. ;)
