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.

Review quote

"A wonderful book, a story of secrets and memory, of terrible loss and hard truths, of nighttime adventures with a boy who comes this close to kissing you... and how a girl finds her own path to belonging." -Judy Blundell, author of "What I Saw and How I Lied", winner of the National Book Award "Tara 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 Printz Honor Book "The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks" and "The Boyfriend List" "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 "Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters" and "How to Say Goodbye in Robot"show more
