Voigt, Cynthia. A Solitary Blue. Atheneum, 2003. ISBN 978-0689863608 256 pp. $
Due to the pressure of one of my amazing colleagues, and my absolute devotion to Cynthia Voigt’s books, Homecoming and Dicey’s Song, I read A Solitary Blue. This is another book in the Tillerman series, but this one focuses on the life and happenings of Dicey’s friend, Jeff. Cynthia Voigt has done it again, a moving story… both in action and emotion. Her characters have such depth and breadth and seem so real. If you are a fan of the two Tillerman focused books, you will love it when Dicey and her clan start popping up in Jeff’s story. Like Dicey, Jeff is abandoned by his mother, but in a different way. We learn here why Jeff is such an incredible character and good friend to the Tillerman family. There is so much in Voigt’s novels, it’s hard to know where to start to describe them. If you can, just read them. You won’t regret it!
I just started Shopaholic by Judy Waite and Hill Hawk Hattie by Clara Gillow Clark. Full reports coming soon!
