eBook Dicey's Song My friend assures me that Dicey's Song was on several school suggested reading lists and that she read it in ninth grade. Otherwise (well, that and the shiny Newbery medal on the cover), this would have pushed a book off this year's YA/MG book bracket. It's that good.This is old-school Newbery. This is brilliant. It's warm and empathetic and difficult and real. It's so good that I don't have the words to properly convey my awe. There's this moment, when Dicey's paper is being read aloud and she slowly realizes where that's going, that is one of those perfect reading moments where you're both entirely in the book and fully cognizant of how lucky you are that this exists, that it's been written.What a cast of characters. What a family. WHAT A BOOK THIS IS. How on EARTH did I miss reading it in high school?. Dicey's Song go inside Books Now that the four abandoned Tillerman children are settled in with their grandmother, Dicey finds that their new beginnings require love, trust, humor, and courage..

Bestseller Book Dicey's Song When I was at the library looking at the spine of this book I noticed how well worn and tattered it was,(a sure sign the book has been checked out many times). I began to scratch the back of my head wondering "Do I really want to read this again and run the risk of ruining my image of the book? " I took the plunge anyways and once I started to read again my doubts faded away. This bookALWAYSmakes my heart go all fuzzy.Dicey's song is the sequel to Homecoming (another great read), but I had read this one first and I had no trouble following it. I'm certain must young adult readers would find this book somewhat boring with all these high action books we have now (Don't get me wrong I love reading those too!) Every once in awhile I like reading something that touches what life is all about. I'm convinced that the Tillerman family is real. When I read this moving story the first time I wanted to be Dicey. You get her and sympathize with her even if she is a little rough around the edges. She cares little about what other people think and strives to do right by her family and herself. Being twelve years old in the book, this is no small feat. She really is wise beyond her years. Every single character is drawn out perfectly. From funny Sammy all the way to tough loving Gram.I feel the love and the care come from this family through the pages. Voight does all this without using any kind of pretentious language. That's real talent. I have no complaints. Wouldn't change asingleword. My review doesn't even touch the surface of doing it justice.
