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.

I first read this when I was in fourth or fifth grade, and as I recall, I found it rather depressing. There were certain images and moments that really stuck with me, though, so after reading Homecoming for the first time, I thought I'd re-read Dicey's Song and see how I felt about it now. I liked it much, much better this time around. Dicey is a wonderfully tough character who nonetheless has a lot of flaws and vulnerabilities that make her extremely likeable. I really identified with her ambiguity about being 13 and starting to look more like a girl/woman. I think if I'd read this book in seventh grade, I would've taken more away from it than I did when I read it in fifth.
