Dicey's Song | Cynthia Voigt

Third book complete for #JumpStart2020, a reread of an old favorite. I need to continue the series, as I‘ve only ever read the first two, so I hope this time it‘ll take.

mdhughes72 This is a Newbery Winner yes? I never got to this one. 7d
ravenlee @mdhughes72 it is a winner. It‘s the second book in the Tillerman Cycle, following Homecoming. It might stand alone but makes much more sense after the first book. I haven‘t read the rest of the series yet. 7d
mdhughes72 I knew there was a reason I skipped over it! When my kids were little we worked through A LOT of the Newbery books. I miss those days. 6d

4/5⭐ Still love this family and their journey through the challenges they face while striving to remain true to each other. It's especially nice to see the book tackle how the world reacts to various differences: in learning ability, body weight, race, finances, etc.

Just finished Dicey's song. I am a little emotional. It was good. I will always carry the Tillermans ib my heart.

I gave my niece Mia a copy of Dicey‘s Song for her birthday this year, and I will quite simply never tire of this view.

I'm working on reading all of the Newbery winners backwards. This one is #nextup, the winner from 1983. #fallintobooks

raeintheworld I remember this one from 8th grade! 2y
Readerann Great goal! I just finished my Read-the-Newberys project in the spring. It took me 6 years! 2y
smilingshelves @raeintheworld I'm surprised this isn't one I read in middle school. I'm looking forward to it! 2y
smilingshelves @Readerann That's awesome! What an accomplishment. It's going to take me more than six years I'm sure, but I'll get there eventually! 2y

This book always makes me cry. It is so very lovely and I think illustrates beautifully the joy and the struggle of growing up and finding your place, your people, and yourself in the world.

Perhaps I've crossed into a nit-picking dork reader zone, but there is a missing quotation mark here, AND a character's name is spelled 2 different ways throughout the book, AND there's no copyright page (what? You don't read the copyright page?).

jess_mccoy And one MORE thing: I have the option on my kindle turned on to see what passages other people have highlighted, and they do not highlight the things *I* think are important. COMEON READERS 3y
