Publisher Comments:

andlt;Bandgt;"IT'S STILL TRUE."andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; That's the first thing James Tillerman says to his sister Dicey every morning. It's still true that their mother has abandoned the four Tillerman children somewhere in the middle of Connecticut. It's still true they have to find their way, somehow, to Great-aunt Cilla's house in Bridgeport, which may be their only hope of staying together as a family. andlt;BRandgt; But when they get to Bridgeport, they learn that Great-aunt Cilla has died, and the home they find with her daughter, Eunice, isn't the permanent haven they've been searching for. So their journey continues to its unexpected conclusion — and some surprising discoveries about their history, and their future.

Synopsis:

In Voigt's first novel--and the introduction to her Tillerman saga--the four Tillerman children, abandoned by their emotionally ill mother, travel on foot from New England to their paternal grandmother's Maryland farm in search of a place to call home. An ALA Best of the Best for Young Adults.

I read this book in the 8th grade. I also read the sequals to it and they were all VERY good! I think I read the whole book in about a week and a half. Its a really long book and I couldn't put it down. Thats how good it was. I'm not a big reader, but this is still to this day one of my favorite books!
