“Dicey’s Song” by Cynthia Voigt was a highly successful novel. It was an instant success when it was first published. The book received the Newbery Medal for excellence in American children’s literature in the year 1983.
Cynthia Voigt, the author of the present novel, was the second child in the family of six. She was brought up in a well off family. Her parents could afford to send her to an exclusive private school in Wellesley, Massachusetts, near her family home in Boston.
She had a very happy childhood. The only thing that marred her happiness was her competition with her older sister who was perhaps more graceful than Voigt.
When she was studying in the ninth grade, she began to pursue publication of her writing. However, her dream could only be fulfilled after many years. She had an illusion that if her script got rejected by a publisher, the script was not fit to be published.
