HOMECOMING is consistently one of our all-time best school adoption titles. In fact, of the 300 top selling mass market books Ballantine has published in the past year, HOMECOMING ranks as number 32. That's right up there with Michael Crichton, Anne Rice, and Amy Tan. Curious to see what all the excitement was about, I was compelled to read it. I was not disappointed. This is a heartwarming story of child abandonment and how a determined 13-year-old (Dicey Tillerman) courageously leads her three younger siblings to the safety of a new home. We in the educational marketing department feel it's already a contemporary classic. Also available are free Teacher's Guides (394-21873).From the Inside Flap:
ing book...An enthralling journey to a gratifying end."
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
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....
"Fantastic...Dicey's strength and courage carry the story."
