Press Release: Misfit McCabe Wins Runner-up Honors in Teen Choice Award

Young Adult/Teen
Press Release: Pearson Prize Teen Choice Award contest is held annually in Montreal, QC to help promote reading and obtain books for the schools. Misfit McCabe is a young adult novel which garnered runner-up honors in the contest.

The 2009 Pearson Prize Teen Choice Award winners have been announced and Misfit McCabe by LK Gardner-Griffie grabbed runner-up honors. Published in 2008, Misfit McCabe is written for teen readers, a market that can be notoriously difficult to reach. The Pearson Prize attempts to make reading exciting to teens by involving them in selecting a winner and two runner-up prizes for the contest.

Author LK Gardner-Griffie specializes in teen literature. Misfit McCabe is the story of 14 year old Katie McCabe. The story follows her journeys through a difficult year where she deals with the illness of her father and going to live with her Uncle Charley. Any teen is sure to recognize her struggles with a new town, new friends, and new foes.

The Pearson Prize Teen Choice Award started in 2008 as a way to engage Montreal teenagers in reading books. The brain child of Michael Earnest Sweet, the prize also serves as a way to bring in books for teens to read on a limited budget. Authors donate books as their entrance fee to the contest, the teens get books to read, and the authors get recognition. All of the books are independently published.

LK Gardner-Griffie says of the award, "There can be no greater satisfaction for a writer than to have their work read and enjoyed. Now all I have to do is get Nowhere Feels Like Home ready to enter next year’s contest!"
