Dicey’s Song is a remarkable story about a young lady just hitting the brink of puberty as she deals with the harsh realities life has dealt her. Normally responsible for her family, young Dicey must learn to entrust her grandmother with her siblings and that poses an issue for her. It’s a wonderful book, I think, especially for girls between the ages of 10 and 14, as it talks about a lot of things they’ll deal with. Among them include life changes, puberty, loss, and generally growing up.
The cover is mildly eye-catching but doesn’t give a great description of what is contained within the story itself.
