Homecoming Home

Advertisement - Guide continues below


There's no place like home, right? Especially if your mom ditches you and your siblings in a mall parking lot, which is exactly what happens to Dicey and the rest of the Tillerman kids in Homecoming. Throughout this book, the Tillerman kids journey around the east coast looking for one thing—a home. But that's not just a roof over their heads and three square meals a day. Dicey and her siblings learn that home is place where you feel like you belong and can be yourself. Now if only they could click their heels together to speed up the process…

Questions About Home

  1. Compare and contrast the houses the kids stay at in Provincetown, Bridgeport, and Crisfield. What's the same and different about each?
  2. Why do you think Abigail decides to let the kids stay with her after all? Use the text to support your answer.
  3. You know how Dicey defines home. How would you define it?

Chew on This

The reason Dicey knows that Abigail's is the right place for the Tillerman kids to stay is because she learns the difference between a house and a home at Cousin Eunice's.

So long as they have Dicey, the younger Tillermans are always at least partially at home.
