What a day, Dicey thought. What a summer, for that matter, but especially, what a day. (from the first line)
|In this Newbery Medal-winning novel, 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, but after watching over her three younger siblings for so long, it''s hard to let go. Who is Dicey, if she''s no longer the caretaker for her family?|
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.
