    I have the feeling that I know who I am, only I'm not anymore.

    3.5 ⭐️

    This was a wonderful second installment to the Tillerman Cycle.
    When we last left Dicey, James, Maybeth and Sammy - they were beginning new lives, living on their grandmothers farm.

    This novel has more focus on the characters themselves, rather than much plot. Which was quite a change from the adventure driven storyline in book 1. It was nonetheless enjoyable, and I loved following the kids as they learned to adjust to life without their mother.

    I'm sorry the world is the way it is and always has been. It's not easy is it?

    Dicey finds it the most difficult out of the family. As her siblings discover who they are and who they want to be, Dicey finds herself lost. If her siblings don't need her like they used to, who is she if she isn't the responsible rock that she has always been for her family?

    Lovely book 2 and I am looking forward to continuing the rest of this series.

    Tillerman's have that kind of courage...we have brave spirits.

    When I was at the library looking at the spine of this book I noticed how well worn and tattered it was,(a sure sign the book has been checked out many times). I began to scratch the back of my head wondering Do I really want to read this again and run the risk of ruining my image of the book? I took the plunge anyways and once I started to read again my doubts faded away. This book ALWAYS makes my heart go all fuzzy.

    Dicey's song is the sequel to Homecoming (another great read), but I had read this one first and I had no trouble following it. I'm certain must young adult readers would find this book somewhat boring with all these high action books we have now (Don't get me wrong I love reading those too!) Every once in awhile I like reading something that touches what life is all about.

    I'm convinced that the Tillerman family is real. When I read this moving story the first time I wanted to be Dicey. You get her and sympathize with her even if she is a little rough around the edges. She cares little about what other people think and strives to do right by her family and herself. Being twelve years old in the book, this is no small feat. She really is wise beyond her years. Every single character is drawn out perfectly. From funny Sammy all the way to tough loving Gram.

    I feel the love and the care come from this family through the pages. Voight does all this without using any kind of pretentious language. That's real talent. I have no complaints. Wouldn't change a single word.

    My review doesn't even touch the surface of doing it justice.

    My friend assures me that Dicey's Song was on several school suggested reading lists and that she read it in ninth grade. Otherwise (well, that and the shiny Newbery medal on the cover), this would have pushed a book off this year's YA/MG book bracket. It's that good.

    This is old-school Newbery. This is brilliant. It's warm and empathetic and difficult and real. It's so good that I don't have the words to properly convey my awe. There's this moment, when Dicey's paper is being read aloud and she slowly realizes where that's going, that is one of those perfect reading moments where you're both entirely in the book and fully cognizant of how lucky you are that this exists, that it's been written.

    What a cast of characters. What a family. WHAT A BOOK THIS IS. How on EARTH did I miss reading it in high school?

    Though I eventually devoured every book in this series, this was the first one I read. I loved these books as a kid - I loved that they didn't feel like books for kids at all. They seemed like real books - as opposed to, say, Baby Sitters Club. I love what an odd, believable character Dicey is, that she's a tomboy with a mothering instinct who wants to build boats. These books broke my heart again and again (and I did re-read them all several times.) I love the way the entire series is written, with occasional spotlights thrown on supporting characters. Such a rich world, I almost belive I was there.

  5. says:

    This is quite possible my favorite book. I read it first as a kid, and didn't realize quite how much I idolized the title character, Dicey. She was strong, independent, and different from those around her without caring much. Reading the book as an adult, I realize that Dicey was the character I most had wanted to be like as a kid.

    Also cool--other books in the Tillerman Cycle, namely Come a Stranger and A Solitary Blue, tell the story from the points of view of two of Dicey's friends. There are a couple of scenes from Dicey's song that are told from Mina's eyes or Jeff's eyes, which make them interesting reading (and great for a lesson on PoV, if you happen to teach language arts in middle school, like I used to).

    3.5 stars I'm getting a strong opinion that I couldn't just hand over a newer/modern Newberry Medal winner book to my kids at their age without prereading it. This could have been a good read, if not for the mention of sex, French kiss, bossom, which I thought were better left out.

  7. says:

    now that Homecoming got me stuck on/in a series, and invested in a couple of characters, i HAD to read this one!

    in a way, i'm sorry i did, as it took me down some roads i did NOT need to go down. then again, tho ...

    i'm REALLY glad i DID read this. first of all, ya know that saying, out of the mouth of babes? well ...

    this book falls into that category, sort of. guess you have to change the old adage, tho, to out of the mouth FOR babes, since the book was originally intended for teens. BUT ...

    like the first one, from this book ANYONE can learn something valuable. do you realize that the majority of families are NOT actually functional, but dysfunctional, and VERY so?! it's true, i think. that's what i learned from this book. granted, it's a sad fact, but then again ...

    it's not. as, since most of us are/were dysfunctional, it's nice to know that we aren't/weren't alone. ya know, misery loves company kind of thing (very cliche this morning, aren't i?!), which then means, our (those of us who are/were dysfunctional) lives weren't as bad as we thought. IF that makes any sense??? guess you'd have to be wearing the same shoes to understand!!! anyway ...

    the road it took me down made me cry, and BUCKETS of tears, BUT ...

    it was a GOOD and VERY cleansing cry, and i learned some valuable lessons, that HOPEFULLY, i can put into play.

    ok, i'm off to steal the 3rd book in the series from that bratty daughter of mine that got me hooked on this blasted thing! 8^)

    A good book that, I suspect, will be a considered slow moving by at least some of its intended audience. Really, it's a book that adults (re: parents) want their children to like as opposed ton e they actually will like. Some will get it. Hopefully, others will come back and recognize that the pace is intentional, the plot only suffers from comparison to the (sadly more common) hyperunrealistic stories for teenagers in books and on TV, and that being big and loud aren't always prerequisites--or even desirable elements--for emotional power. A quiet book, for better or worse.

  9. says:

    Really excellent. If I would have known how good it was going to be, I would have gone ahead and read the first book before reading this one. I'm just working through the Newbery winners and in the interest of getting the list done sometime soon I decided to skip earlier books in series.

    Dicey's Song was a contemporary fiction back in the early 80's when it won the Newbery. If you are looking for pop references though, you will not really find them in this book. At the end of the book, the kids are getting ready to try their first pizza. Man, I remember that! Back in the early 80's, there were still people who had never tried pizza. I was something like 7 years old the first time my parents got us a pizza. My mom had tried to make us pizza before that, but, it was just spaghetti sauce with cheese on bread dough. A good attempt, but, this was the age before the internet. They got a pepperoni pizza and I still remember being shocked by how amazing it was.

    Anyways, I digress. This book is somewhat about mental illness, Dicey's mom is at a hospital far away in a catatonic state. The first book was apparently about their journey to their grandmother's house after their mom abandoned them. This second book does fill in enough detail where you don't have to read the first one, but, I was left wishing that I had. They are a family of oddball characters, some prone to fighting, some with learning disabilities and a grandmother who is the town's strange character.

    Parents will appreciate the 'be yourself' message. There's no romance in the book, but, you are left with the idea that there will be in future books. Dicey is a great character, she's self-sufficient and complex. She both wants alone time but also feels some discomfort when her siblings need her less. She doesn't want friends or connections but, then realizes that she shouldn't hold people at arms length. She learns this from her Grandmother's mistakes with a childhood friend.

    I didn't really pick up on anything problematic in this book. Grandma tries to initiate a talk about the 'birds and the bees' and Dicey stops her, tells her what she already knows and says she will ask when she's ready to hear more.

    I really liked the home ec class portions. The teacher is a bit of a witch, but, there is one speech in there that is just great. Dicey didn't want to take home ec, she wanted to take mechanical drafting but there wasn't room for her in the class which Dicey knows is partly due to gender bias, boys take drafting and girls take home ec. The teacher makes a point that everyone should learn home ec and she laments that more boys don't take the class because it's information that everyone needs. I really feel that a lot of parents have done their boys a disservice by not insisting on some skill in that area.

    A lot of award winning children's books are more fun for adults to read, but, I feel like Dicey's Song would be appealing to children who like an emotional adventure.

    This second book in the series was easier for me to get involved in more quickly, and the shorter page-length benefited the story. I really enjoyed seeing the Tillerman’s getting acquainted with their new home and seeing how Dicey adjusted to her changing role. They are a fun family to read about.
