"Richly textured....No one who loves the Tillermans--whose joys and troubles are as compelling as ever--will want to miss this."
THE KIRKUS REVIEWS
There's only one thing Dicey Tillerman wants to do--and that's build boats. If she can make a success of doing what she loves, she can take care of the rest of the Tillerman clan, which includes her two younger brothers, her younger sister, and Gram, who took them all in when their mother abandoned them. But dreaming isn't doing, and Dicey begins to find out the hard way that starting a business is difficult, and that you have to expect the unexpected....
Cynthia Voigt won the Newbery Medal for Dicey’s Song, the Newbery Honor Award for A Solitary Blue, and the National Book Award Honor for Homecoming, all part of the beloved Tillerman cycle.
