Allmänna fakta




Choosing to banish screens from the bedroom has done wonders for my reading life. And after a summer jag reading The Chronicles of Narnia (my selected favorites), I chose to pursue more children's lit for most of my evening reads.

I think I read [b:Homecoming|12125|Homecoming (Tillerman Cycle, #1)|Cynthia Voigt||213788] years ago. But with the passage of time, and a more mature appreciation for a road trip tale, and childhood vis a vis abandonment, this read seemed like the first. The pages just kept turning.

The next title in the series, [b:Dicey's Song|11831|Dicey's Song (Tillerman Cycle, #2)|Cynthia Voigt||1968913] is on my nightstand, because I'm eager to know how each child fares in the next phase of their development. How do we survive childhood? How does anyone who faces the challenges of the Tillerman clan? What kind of adults will they be?

Almost, but not quite, unbelievable reading.

Voigt deftly portrays characters with depth and complexity. There is no sugar-coating of the working-class American family, nor shying away from racial tensions on the personal level during de-segragation. Satisfying read in every way.

Growing up in a traditional nuclear family I seldom tried to imagine any other reality. Voigt's Tillerman Cycle was published after my middle- and high-school tenure, when exposure to different family structures would have stretched me, to say the least, in positive ways.

With attention to the details of each character's speech, mannerisms, and interior dialog, Voigt breathes vibrant life into these memorable protagonists. The development of adolescent identity without a parent, or without both, unspools with confident pacing that kept me turning the pages.

I will miss the Tillermans.

Thoroughly satisfying read the second time through. When I first read it years ago, I was so concrete and literal in my understanding of the title that I kept looking for the passage about the song—one Dicey sings, one sung about or for her...

Shaking my head about that now. Brilliant storytelling with complex characters, many who were introduced in [b:Homecoming|12125|Homecoming (Tillerman Cycle, #1)|Cynthia Voigt||213788], moving through vivid and memorable settings.

Of course it is an award book, it earned it!
