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.

About the Author

Cynthia Voigt was born on February 25, 1942 in Boston, Massachusetts and grew up in Connecticut. Voigt went to Smith College where she earned her bachelor's degree. She went on to do her graduate work at St. Michael's College and later got a teacher's certification from Christian Brothers College. After college, Voigt worked for an advertising agency. She has also been a secretary, and she was a high school English teacher in Glen Burnie and Annapolis, Maryland. She was the English department chair from 1971 to 1979. Homecoming was the first book that she finished and published. It was published in 1981 by Atheneum. Voigt's children's books address such issues at child abuse and racism, topics that are not often talked about in books designed for children. She won the Notable Children's Trade Book in the field of social studies for Homecoming, the Newbery Medal, ALA in 1983 for Dicey's Song, and the Edgar Allan Poe Award in 1984 for The Callender Papers. In 1995, Voigt received the MAE Award.
