Dicey's Song

My mother didn't want me to read this book because she thought it was too sad. But reading Kira, Kira prepared me for it. Kira, Kira is the saddest book I have read. Dicey's Song was a good book because it was remarkable how Dicey's family was able to overcome so many obstacles with so very little money or other resources. Dicey is smart, committed to her family, determined, and has qualities that I admire. Dicey's Song is part of a series of books about the same characters. When I am done reading the Newbery's I am going to read them all.
