Character Role Analysis

Dicey Tillerman

We see the action of the book through Dicey’s eyes, and it's Dicey’s struggle that guides the plot. We see her ambivalence about growing up, having friends, and boy-girl stuff through her conversations and interactions with Gram, Mina, and Jeff. We root for her every step of the way as she navigates the minefield that is early adolescence.
