Novel Study Unit for Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt created by My Reading Resources needs NO PREP- just print and let students get to work.
HOMECOMING by Cynthia Voigt is the first of seven novels about the four Tillerman children, known as the Tillerman Cycle. Their poverty stricken single mother (who has mental illness) takes them to a mall and leaves them waiting in her beat-up old car. After realizing that she isn't coming back, Dicey, who is 13 and the oldest, takes charge. Dicey knows that if they go to the police, they will probably be split up into separate foster homes. So she leads her siblings on a journey through several states to find a relative who might take them in. Walking most of the way, not knowing
where their next meal is coming from, sleeping in random places, Dicey takes care of her family trying to have faith that they will eventually find a home.
