But dreaming isn't doing, and Dicey begins to find out the hard way that starting a business is difficult, and that you have to expect the unexpected.... --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
From the Back Cover
'Dicey straightened up. A man was leaning against the door frame, the bright sunlight behind him shadowing his face. His eyes watched her, laughing''
Dicey Tillerman knows you don't get what you want just by wanting it. But running a boat-building business proves to be tougher than she could have imagined. So when a drifter turns up at her shop offering help for free – Dicey accepts. But does she trust him too much?
'Seventeen Against the Dealer' is the final haunting book in the acclaimed Tillerman Series. It concludes the story of characters introduced in Book One, 'Homecoming', now a Collins Modern Classic.--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Voigt's writing wraps itself around me just the way the song wraps around Dicey. I never want to leave. By book seven, I love this family and these characters so much they feel as though they're mine. There' s just something about the Tillermans that' s impossible not to admire. They tackles their problems with nothing but her own two hands and an inability to fail. Dicey is the definition of tenacity. To a fault sometimes. But she knows what's important and she takes care of her own. That's why it's so beautiful to find this last story was hers alone. And to find that after everything she's been through, she's so far from perfect. She still has things to learn about life and loved ones and not taking any of it for granted. This story is so real in its depiction of the painful entrance to adulthood, the monotonous grind of daily labor, and the process of learning how to love someone the way they need to (and ought to) be loved. It takes my breath away every time. Seventeen against the Dealer stands on its own, but don't start with the last. Read all seven books for the full experience.

Dicey's ambition to build boats appears
less realistic because neither she nor anyone else goes near the water!
True she devotes herself to the business , and learns that kind of devotion , -leads to ignoring what else is happening around !
When Cisco, a charming down and outer, appears, and seems to be the answer to her prayers she seems unable to recognize a real criminal when she meets one !
Her relationship with Jeff is similarly slightly unrealistic ! Nonetheless ,despite these criticisms
But given that the novel is intended for a Young Adult audience ,lack of reality is almost a given
I felt very unsatisfied with this novel and annoyed with how the well beloved series ended. We see almost nothing of Jeff nor much of his romantic relationship with Dicey. This novel could have been so much more but I had to read it to complete the series.
