Dicey's Song

Dicey's Song


by Cynthia Voigt

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


There’s no sex at all in Dicey’s Song, unless you count the conversation Dicey has with Gram as they drive home from shopping, when Gram tries to have The Talk. But to be fair, there are elements of sexuality throughout. For one thing, Dicey's getting breasts, and there’s a scene in which she gets her first bra. Mina mentions French-kissing, but Dicey says she doesn’t want to talk about it, just like she doesn’t want to go on a date with Jeff yet. It's all very tame and wholesome, meaning this book is fun for the whole family, as long as the family doesn’t mind reading about boobs.
