Description

Popular author Tara Altebrando's Dreamland Social Club is a magical novel about one vagabond family finding a home. Still pained by the loss of her mother years earlier, Jane has been all over the world with her brother and father. Once they plant stakes in New York's Coney Island, Jane begins to feel settled. And the mermaids, dwarves, bearded girls, contortionists, and tattooed boys certainly keep things interesting. "Palpable without being melodramatic . a languid, introspective novel about a search for identity and meaning."-Publishers Weekly

Professional reviews

"Jane is a teenager who has traveled the world but has never had a place to call home until she moves to Coney Island with her father and brother after inheriting a house from a grandfather she never met. The story moves slowly as it is full of Jane's memories of her mother, and narrator Erin Moon competently conveys the dreamlike quality of these recollections and fantasies. Moon reads from Jane's point of view in a natural tone and differentiates the voices of Jane's classmates through the use of New York accents and a variety of different tones and pitches that connect Jane's impressions of them to their characters. But Moon's portrayal of Jane lacks expressiveness, and the even pacing she employs doesn't help move the story along. E.N. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
