This isn't the exact version I read, but I've been eating up these Tillerman books since picking up 'Dicey's Song' at the thrift store about two weeks ago. When I was much younger, it and 'Homecoming' were both among my top favorites.

I plowed into them again this time around, but while those two remained great, my enthusiasm for the series began to wane as it focused on other characters, all of whom spoke with voices much like Dicey's. Too much wisdom-beyond-young-people's-years. I've still got

Recommended to Joolie by: my mom and the library
when i was 10 or something my mom decided i needed to start reading "classics" or something like that - my babysitters clubbers weren't cutting it. so she got me a list of book award books from the library and made me read from that. well, this series was my favorite (along with the westing game which is still amazing as an adult). Kids alone with just their wits, walking across the US to find home. amazing. PLUS a kick-ass tough girl leader heroine.

Recommends it for: parents and children
i always liked this kind of story as a kid myself, where a kid overcomes obstacles. i also liked the details,how they explained why they purchased what they did with their palltry amount of money, and how they made decisions about people they met.i dont think my kids liked it as much,they didnt stay interested in the second part, which i relly enjoyed as well.

I remembered reading the first part of Homecoming in Dutch when I was younger and enjoying it very much, so I was thrilled to find this three-part volume in a second-hand bookstore in England two years ago. I read Homecoming so far (and liked it again), but I'll wait with my rating until I've finished the whole volume.

I loved this in...I think I was in middle school when I read it. Very thoughtful and lovable...

Not amazing. Almost like a boxcar children's adventure set in the 1960s. It was pretty drawn out.

A good series with a strong lead character who rises above a very dysfunctional family.

I loved these books when I read them. In the 80s they seemed to 'keep it real'.

I know I read these, but I don't really remember them too well.
