The series of books revolves around two boys who have no home, that live on their own and travel the "countryside".

The No Home Boys: On the Run book features the No Home Boys being chased across the country by "the very fear resting within themselves."
No Home Boys #2: Case of the Pilfered Pegasus
No Home Boys #2: Case of the Pilfered Pegasus is a graphic novel adaptation of the fictional No Home Boys book franchise. It is first seen in the episode "On the Run" and featured on Ronaldo Fryman's blog, Keep Beach City Weird.
Steven has stated that it was a "disastrous graphic novel adaptation."
Ronaldo gave the book a C+, saying, "Some fans turned up their noses at the new adventures of the No Home Boys. The old series was a down to earth travelogue - a gritty portrayal of growing up during the Great Depression. The new series was full of magic demons, talking animals and ninjas. Sure it didn’t have the same campfire charm, but the expanded “Hoboverse” had much more character development and backstory for readers to sink their teeth into."
Steven's appreciation for the book series inspires him and Amethyst to set out on their own journey across the countryside.

- Steven has stated that it is his favorite book series.
- Ronaldo has stated that while he admired that the graphic novel adaptation expanded the "Hoboverse", he gave it a C+.
- In "Reformed", The No Home Boys: Mystery Train makes a brief cameo in one of Amethyst's junk piles in her room.
- The title of Mystery Train may be a reference to the 2nd season Adventure Time episode of the same name, as Rebecca Sugar has worked on Adventure Time before.
- The No Home Boys is based off The Boxcar Children.
- No Home Boys #2: Case of the Pilfered Pegasus is a reference to The Hardy Boys: Undercover Brothers, a graphic novel series published by Papercutz based off The Hardy Boys. Like Case of the Pilfered Pegasus, Undercover Brothers features manga style art, a drastic tone shift compared to the original series, and covers boasting full color art & new stories. Unlike Case of the Pilfered Pegasus, Undercover Brothers is tied into a newer series of Hardy Boy books and doesn't feature as many prominent supernatural elements.
