Reviews - What do customers think about La familia Tillerman busca hogar?
One of my favorites Feb 26, 2001
This is the first book in the "Tillerman Saga" and one of my favorite books ever. I first read it when I was twelve, and was fascinated by the courage Dicey displayed. I just turned 21, and on re-reading it I find it to have grown better with age. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in how four kids could survive a summer mostly on their own, or learning about how just because people look one way on the outside doesn't mean that is what they are really like; actually, I'd recommed this book, and the rest to anyone.
A heart-warming, realistic story Feb 24, 1998
As an education professional involved with young people I read these books a lot. I was moved by this tale and found it paralleled the lives of some young people I know. I could hardly wait to read the sequel. Ms Voight has also branched out in her later works, even into historical novels. She is a writer to be reckoned with.
Watch out, it is really bad Jun 20, 1997
I was forced to read this book for school this year (6th grade) and it was terrible. With shallow characters, tedious description, and boring dialogue, all this book's good for is firewood.
Dont waste your money
This was a very good and interesting novel! Apr 28, 1997
This book was a great survival book. It was full of so much suspense that you could never guess what would happen next. I loved this book and I will never forget the plot of this story
