Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt
The Tillerman kids' mother just left them one day in a car in a mall parking lot. Their father, too, had left them a long time ago. So, as usual, it was up to thirteen-year-old Dicey, the eldest of four, to take care of everything, make all the decisions, feed them, find places to sleep. But above all, Dicey would have to make sure to avoid the authorities who would split them up and place them in foster homes. Deep down, she hoped they could find an adult they could trust, someone who would take them in and love them. But she was afraid it was too much to hope for....
"A glowing book...An enthralling journey to a gratifying end."
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"Fantastic...Dicey's strength and courage carry the story."
