Homecoming
Homecoming | Cynthia Voigt
17 posts | 35 read | 15 to read
The iconic start to the timeless, Newbery-winning series from Cynthia Voigt.Its still true. Thats the first thing James Tillerman says to his older sister, Dicey, every morning. Its still true that their mother has abandoned the four Tillermans in a mall parking lot somewhere in the middle of Connecticut. Its still true that they have to find their own way to Great-aunt Cillas house in Bridgeport. Its still true that they need to spend as little as possible on food and seek shelter anywhere that is out of view of the authorities. Its still true that the only way they can hope to all stay together is to just keep moving forward. Deep down, Dicey hopes they can find someone to trust, someone who will take them in and love them. But shes afraid its just too much to hope for....

If I had to DTR with the book we‘re talking about on this week‘s episode of my podcast, our status would definitely be “it‘s complicated.” Tune in to hear me and Kelly Jensen (of Book Riot!) discuss Cynthia Voigt‘s Homecoming, the first book in the Tillerman Cycle. We talk about birth order, mental health, religion, circus performers, cold hot dogs, and so much more. Link to listen in bio!

#letstravelaugust day 3! This was the only thinking I Thoughts of for #camping (well, not the only thing—I just don‘t own a copy of the last Harry Potter book!)

Always a good read. Dicey‘s grit and resourcefulness, and the way she learns to accept flaws (her own as well as others) and learn from mistakes, make her a truly compelling character.

Hooked_on_books I read this one back in the day. I remember liking it a lot and looking for other books from her. 4mo

4.5/5⭐ The fascination w/ kids surviving on their own followed me since I 1st read it in elementary school. The challenges the kids face are engrossing & compelling. I adore the consistent theme of defining & finding home. It all felt very real: Dicey's efforts to keep them together, the siblings' relationships, the characters' individual complexities. I fell into the characters & world so that every time I continued it felt like coming home.

Thank you to @MinDea and @Robothugs for this awesome #FavoriteBookGiveaway !
The tagged book is really what opened my eyes/imagination to reading when I was younger. I love imagining the situations that the main character came across when she was trying to protect herself and her siblings as runaways!

MinDea Thanks for entering! 14mo

TieDyeDude I want to reread. I spent a good 5 months trying to figure out the title based on what I remembered from reading it in middle school. Lots of Google searches... 1y

I remember borrowing this book from the library years ago and returning without completing it because of lack of time! I also remember enjoying this book. And then recently I just happened to come across this beautiful cover at an online bookstore and I had to buy it!😍😍😍 I will finally be completing this book.💝💝

I snagged this pic off Bing since I don't have my paperback copy anymore. I don't know what happened to it, but I expect it got misplaced or forgotten during a move when I was 15. 😭This is the same cover mine had, however, and it was just as well loved. I used to read this book all the time. Probably the one non-little kid book that I ever physically (as opposed to audiobook) read repeatedly growing up. I must reread this. #childhoodrereads

monkeygirlsmama @Missusb I can't honestly say whether or not I ever read it. I know I meant to. Might have been one I borrowed from the library as opposed to owning. I just know Homecoming sucked me in and I couldn't get enough. When I find a copy to reread I'll have to look for Dicey's song as well. (edited) 2y
TheWordJar Oh, I loved Homecoming! I definitely need a reread. I think it's one my daughter might enjoy as well. 2y

I used to read this every summer. It has been a few years now and wow does this book make me more anxious now that I am an adult who is responsible for children. Still it is so so so good. Love the characters love the details. Love it.

Dicey, her brothers & sister are abandoned by their mother in a car in a mall parking lot. They were on their way to an aunt's house, so they decide to keep going on their own, hoping that this unknown relative will take them in & help them find their mother. Dicey leads them on a long journey through towns, state parks, & rivers, sleeping off the road & out of sight.
An excellent yarn; I was rooting for Dicey and her little family from Page One.

This was a required read during my elementary days and it turned out to be one of my favorites! I Love the Tillerman four and I feel I'm due for a re-read.
