Abandoned by their mother, four children begin a search for a home and an identity. It's still true. 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. 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.

I probably read this book half a dozen times when I was a kid, and this is the second time I’ve owned it. Oh god, that was twenty years ago. When I was a teenager I sold most of the books I’d acquired when I was younger, but I wish I had been a bit more judicious with my Cynthia Voigts. A ragtag group of children making it on their own with their smarts and their budgeting skills, I still love it!

Reading Homecoming again has made me excited to revisit Cynthia Voigt. Can’t wait to pick up Jackaroo again!

Homecomming is simply about four children trying to find their place in the world. They go through so much over the course of the book, and yes it is a bit slow but entiarly worth reading. I own my own copy, have read it twice now, and know that I will read it again.

Four kids, with Dicey being the oldest, cares for her family. Across several states, sleeping in parks and trees, where ever they cannot be seen. There are times when the only thing they have to eat is a loaf of bread for two days. An AMAZING story of courage and determination.
