Series: 2nd of 7, The Tillerman Cycle

We find the Tillerman family working towards some kind of normalcy in Dicey’s Song, book two of the Tillerman Cycle. Dicey struggles with becoming a normal thirteen-year-old, going to school, making friends, and not having sole responsibility of her younger siblings. Gram decides to adopt the children and tries to handle all the problems the children are having on her own. We also find out what happened to the children’s mother bringing us a sense of closure.

This book is book two of the Tillerman Cycle, but could be read on its own. I suggest it to anyone who likes drama, or books that address family struggles. The characters are very relatable.
