Product Overview

Letting Go

The four Tillerman children finally have a home at their grandmother''s rundown farm on the Maryland shore. It''s what Dicey has dreamed of for her three younger siblings, but after watching over the others for so long, it''s hard to let go. Who is Dicey, if she''s no longer the caretaker for her family?

Dicey finds herself in new friends, in a growing relationship with her grandmother, and in the satisfaction of refinishing the old boat she found in the barn. Then, as Dicey experiences the trials and pleasures of making a new life, the past comes back with devastating force, and Dicey learns just how necessary -- and painful -- letting go can be.

Author Info
Cynthia Voigt
Cynthia Voigt decided in the ninth grade that she wanted to become a writer. She attended Smith College, and after graduation moved to New York where she worked for an advertising agency. After marrying her first husband in 1964, she moved with him to New Mexico where she became a teacher. The couple had one daughter and divorced in 1972. Voigt and her daughter moved to Maryland, where she continued to work as a teacher. It was while searching for books to share with her class of fifth graders that Voigt began to get ideas for young adult and juvenile books that she could write herself. Her first book, HOMECOMING, was published in 1981. The sequel to that book, DICEY'S SONG, won the Newbery Medal in 1983 and, the following year, A SOLITARY BLUE--a companion piece to DICEY'S SONG--was named a Newbery Honor Book.
