Trailer ✓ Dicey's Song PDF by ☆ Cynthia Voigt 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 w This is quite possible my favorite book.
I read it first as a kid, and didn't realize quite how much I idolized the title character, Dicey.
She was strong, independent, and different from those around her without caring much.
Reading the book as an adult, I realize that Dicey was the character I most had wanted to be like as a kid.
Also coolother books in the Tillerman Cycle, namely Come a Stranger and A Solitary Blue, tell the story from the points of view of two of Dicey's friends.
There are a couple of scenes from Dicey's Song that are told from Mina's eyes or Jeff's eyes, which make them interesting reading (and great for a lesson on PoV, if you happen to teach language arts in middle school, like I used to).
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 oldschool 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 sc Though I eventually devoured every book in this series, this was the first one I read.
I loved these books as a kidI loved that they didn't feel like books for kids at all.
They seemed like "real" booksas opposed to, say, Baby Sitters Club.
I love what an odd, believable character Dicey is, that she's a tomboy with a mothering instinct who wants to build boats.
These books broke my heart again and again (and I did reread them all several times.
) I love the way the entire series is written, with occasional spotlights thrown on supporting characters.
Such a rich world, I almost belive I was there.
now that "Homecoming" got me "stuck" on/in a series, and invested in a couple of characters, i HAD to read this one!
in a way, i'm sorry i did, as it took me down some roads i did NOT need to go down.
then again, tho .
i'm REALLY glad i DID read this.
first of all, ya know that saying, "out of the mouth of babes"? well .
this book falls into that category, sort of.
guess you have to change the old adage, tho, to "out of the mouth FOR babes", since the book was originally intended for teens.
like the first one, from this book ANYONE can learn something valuable.
do you realize that the majority of families are NOT actually "functional", but "dysfunctional", and VERY so?! it's true, i think.
that's what i learned from this book.
granted, it's a sad fact, but then again .
as, since most of us are/were "dysfu 3.
5 stars I'm getting a strong opinion that I couldn't just hand over a newer/modern Newberry Medal winner book to my kids at their age without prereading it.
This could have been a good read, if not for the mention of sex, French kiss, bossom, which I thought were better left out.
Really, it's a book that adults (re: parents) want their children to like as opposed ton e they actually will like.
Some will get it.
Hopefully, others will come back and recognize that the pace is intentional, the plot only suffers from comparison to the (sadly more common) hyperunrealistic stories for teenagers in books and on TV, and that being big and loud aren't always prerequisitesor even desirable elementsfor emotional power.
A quiet book, for better or worse.
If I would have known how good it was going to be, I would have gone ahead and read the first book before reading this one.
I'm just working through the Newbery winners and in the interest of getting the list done sometime soon I decided to skip earlier books in series.
Dicey's Song was a contemporary fiction back in the early 80's when it won the Newbery.
If you are looking for pop references though, you will not really find them in this book.
At the end of the book, the kids are getting ready to try their first pizza.
Man, I remember that! Back in the early 80's, there were still people who had never tried pizza.
I was something like 7 years old the first time my parents got us a pizza.
My mom had tried to make us pizza before that, but, it was just spaghetti sauce with cheese on bread dough.

I really enjoyed seeing the Tillerman’s getting acquainted with their new home and seeing how Dicey adjusted to her changing role.
They are a fun family to read about.
