About the Book

The scarecrow, tin man, and lion have all surrendered to the forces of evil—that is until Dorothy comes along. Dorothy is a teenager whose life has been thrown into turmoil by betrayal, loss, and one calamity after another. After a tornado transports her into a strange land, she is encouraged by Princess Holly Sprite to follow the narrow path through the wilderness of an unfamiliar world with the hope of discovering a bedrock of peace and courage. Along the way, she encounters three famous Oz characters who have each abandoned their goal of following the narrow path. With the help of Dorothy and two munchkins, Harry and Pipken, an intrepid little group is formed, united in their desire to reach the heavenly kingdom on Earth. As distractions, obstacles, endless questions, and evil befall the travelers, the group must battle temptations and destructive urges before they can ever find their way to an amazing realization that changes everything. No Place Like Home is the inspiring tale of a teenager’s journey into an unfamiliar world where she and a band of characters embark.

About the Author

An 11-year-old at heart, she has authored 25 books for children and young adults, including Max and the Secret Skunk, The Haunted Hotel, Ballet Bunny, My Brother the Creep, The Haunted Underwear, and The Girl with Green Hair. As a child, Janet was a voracious reader who slept with her books under her pillow at night hoping the stories would stay with her. She enjoys jiujitsu, kickboxing, and likes chocolate a little too much. The three things she absolutely cannot live without are books, trees, and dogs. With the publication of No Place Like Home , Janet hopes to reach a new generation of young readers and their parents with an allegorical adventure that reveals the gospel message of hope and joy. JESSIE BEEBE Jessie has been writing and performing plays since she was in kindergarten. She is a playwright, minister, performing arts director, and the President and Founder of Stand Ministries.

As the leader of Stand Ministries, Jessie has traveled around the world ministering and performing for kids of all ages. Jessie loves serving in ministry with her husband, Donny and her two amazing girls, Ryleigh and Reese.
