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.

"Homecoming is one of those rare books for all ages--part adventure, part family story, about people you grow to care about. Published for children, Homecoming and the other novels about the Tillerman family have become classics and favorites of both children and adults. Barbara Caruso's narrative style is low-key, like the author's, bit it grows on you. Her voice soon become an extension of the book rather than an intermediary. This is one of those wonderfully done recorded books which makes a traffic jam bearable and a long dull trip enjoyable. J.D.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
