You never knew where a road would end, Dicey thought, the breeze curling around her ears, you just knew what roads ended. Not like water, which always keeps moving. Not like the stars, tossed out across the sky. But the Tillermans traveled on a road, and roads ended. Dicey's road, and James's, Maybeth's, Sammy's, had ended here. The Tillermans' road had rolled up against Gram's house, and they had tumbled off it into Gram's. Dicey grinned. Not exactly into Gram's arms, maybe not into her lap. Certainly into her life from Dicey's Song It took 13-year-old Dicey Tillerman all summer to get herself and her three younger siblings to their grandmothers run-down farm on the Chesapeake Bay. Now the four of them face the difficult challenges of fitting into a frightening new world, one where once again, they are outsiders. Gram told Dicey to just hold on, to do all that she could to keep the family together. The trouble is, Dicey has only two hands, and quite a few problems of her own. Growing up, she discovers, is more than just holding on to what is important, it is learning how to let go. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 2/13/2014

    " I absolutely loved this book. It's the second book in the Tillerman series and I just couldn't put it down. It's a continuation of the Tillerman sibling story. Their lives have changed drastically from the summer before and they learn how to adjust, grow and continue to stay together as a family. I really enjoyed it, even more than the first and I liked that one a lot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 1/28/2014

    " I don't remember that much about it. Read it in middle school or high school I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia Martin | 1/22/2014

    " A good story that continues where Homecoming left the Tillerman children. All the kids seem real--none are perfect, they all have problems to overcome, both with each other, their granmother and at school. Then there is the continuing worry about thir emotionally damaged mother. Not all things work out--just as in real life. Maybe in the 3rd volume Dicey will get to sail her boat--again, as in real life, developments take time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 4/8/2012

    " Cynthia Voight has created a thoughtful piece of literature, telling of Dicey, whose complexities far outweigh those of the average 13-year-old. She paints incredible pictures of the life of Dicey and her family with flowing, descriptive prose; the book would not be the same without it. "
