Jane has traveled the world with her father and brother, but it's not until her fractured family-still silently suffering from the loss of Jane's mother many years before-inherits a house and a history in Coney Island that she finally begins to find a home. With the help of a new community of friends, a mermaid's secrets, and a tattooed love interest with traffic-stopping good looks, the once plain Jane begins to blossom and gains the courage to explore the secrets of her mother's past.

Colorful characters, beautiful writing, and a vibrant, embattled beachfront backdrop make this the perfect summer read for anyone who has ever tried to find true love or a place to call home.

About the Author:

Tara Altebrando is an author of books for teens and adults. She lives with her husband and young daughter in Astoria, Queens.

Review:

"Altebrando provides exceptional depth in both the setting and the motley cast of Coney Islanders, teen and adult, living and dead....The result is a memorable tale of personal growth and acceptance that will make teens eager to join a Dreamland Social Club of their own."--Kirkus Reviews (star), Best Teen Books of 2011
 
"This is a wonderful book, a story of secrets and memory, of terrible loss and hard truths, nighttime adventures with a boy who comes this close to kissing you...   and how a girl finds her own path to belonging."--Judy Blundell, National Book Award winning author

"Altebrando makes the bizarre, sensational and sad story of Coney Island seem vital and urgent--whether you have ever been there or not. An entirely strange, wonderfully romantic, and surprisingly political tale"--E. Lockhart, author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
 
"Altebrando conjures a boardwalk fantasia of mermaids, dwarves, bearded girls, contortionists, and beautiful tattooed boys. This charming, sea-salty book stays with you like a half-remembered dream--the kind you wish would never end."--Natalie Standiford, author of How to Say Goodbye in Robot
