Publisher's Summary

On Saturday morning, 13-year-old Dicey Tillerman sits in the car at the shopping mall with her younger sister and two brothers. Momma had said, "You be good." Then she walked away. They wait for a day and a night, but Momma never comes back. Finally, Dicey decides the children should go to Bridgeport, Connecticut where Aunt Cilla lives. Maybe Momma is waiting for them there. But they don't have enough money to take the bus. Determined to keep the family together, Dicey sets off on foot with her siblings in search of Aunt Cilla. Soon, she discovers that finding a home and making one aren't always the same thing. Newbery Award-winning author Cynthia Voigt has captured the hearts of millions of young adults with her poignant tale of a young girl struggling with adult responsibilities. With her glowing narration, Barbara Caruso vividly brings to life each exciting adventure the children experience as they travel in search of a place to call home.

Held my attention!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would definitely recommend this to a friend because this was an interesting story, of children ranging in age from 7 to 13, trying to find a safe place to just live, and the adventures that brought them there.


What other book might you compare Homecoming to and why?

This had the adventurous style of Dodger by Pratt.


What does Barbara Caruso bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She can change her voice to sound like different people. a very good narrator! She is easy to listen to, and shows emotion.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but it was a very good book, and kept things going, remained interesting...
