Only Milo - 28 from Holly

With blogging comes some organization of thoughts and a creation of to-do lists written down or hovering in the forefront of the brain.

I will continue to post blog to-do items I've received from my
Only Milo book giveaway entries (contest ended) until they are exhausted which will be mid-November.

I haven't read this series by Cynthia Voigt.

Tillerman Cycle
The Tillerman Cycle follows the struggles of the eponymous family, beginning with Homecoming, in which one generation of Tillerman children is abandoned by their mother. The young four-some must find their way to their estranged grandmother, under the leadership of thirteen year old Dicey, the eldest sibling and main character of the series. Three of the books are, however, centered on other characters--The Runner follows Dicey's uncle, Bullet. Come a Stranger and A Solitary Blue cover some of the same territory as Dicey's Song from the perspectives of Mina and Jeff, respectively, who are two of Dicey's friends. Throughout Voigt's novels, she taps into the emotional aspects of the struggles of the Tillerman children, as well as the other protagonists of her novels, making the Tillerman cycle a series of books appropriate for all ages.

Looking forward to your review Holly.
