On Saturday morning, 13-year-old Dicey Tillerman sits in the car at the shopping mall with her younger sister and two brothers. Momma had said, You be good. Then she walked away. They wait for a day and a night, but Momma never comes back. Finally, Dicey decides the children should go to Bridgeport, Connecticut where Aunt Cilla lives. Maybe Momma is waiting for them there. But they don't have enough money to take the bus. Determined to keep the family together, Dicey sets off on foot with her siblings in search of Aunt Cilla. Soon, she discovers that finding a home and making one aren't always the same thing. Newbery Award-winning author Cynthia Voigt has captured the hearts of millions of young adults with her poignant tale of a young girl struggling with adult responsibilities. With her glowing narration, Barbara Caruso vividly brings to life each exciting adventure the children experience as they travel in search of a place to call home. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 1/7/2014

    " 3.5 stars - pretty good ending although it felt like historical fiction with the prices they paid! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angt27 | 1/2/2014

    " Such pure and prosaic writing makes for excellent reading. And for some reason this book makes me fascinated with New England geography. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/31/2013

    " I read this for a class on young adult literature. It was not the best of the series, actually a little slow to get into- but I am glad I stuck with it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 12/25/2013

    " Dicey guides her brothers and sisters on an adventure with many stops and challenges along the way to what she thinks might be "home". Quick, good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille | 12/11/2013

    " I was surprised I liked this book so much. It took me a few chapters to really get into it. I usually like plot driven books and while this plot moved along well, it was definitely the characters that held up the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rei | 12/7/2013

    " Very adventurous book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeannette | 10/18/2013

    " I love the Darcy books. When I was a kid, I pretended that my brother and I were all on our own and we'd built a camp in the backyard. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie D'ghent | 2/5/2012

    " A book that is discouraging, until the very end, but makes you so grateful for what you have that you'll never look at a fast food meal again. Did require some white-out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney Kuehn | 10/12/2010

    " read in 7th grade English "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 4/2/2010

    " One of my favorite books as a kid; it still holds up. Has a strong female lead character in Dicey, all the more impressive because she is a child but acts as the leader and protector of her siblings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 12/6/2009

    " I did not like this book. It was totally depresing and weird. Wish I never started to read this book. Don't read it unless you like sad stories. "
