Dear Librarians,

In 1962, singer Freddy Cannon took millions to "a swingin' place called Palisades Park." Like my novels MOLOKA'I and HONOLULU — national bestsellers and reading group favorites — PALISADES PARK tells the history behind the history of this renowned amusement park, as seen by young Toni Stopka, daughter of concessionaires, who dreams of becoming a daredevil high diver. Performers, pitchmen, the civil rights demonstrators picketing the gates, the underworld bosses meeting in secret across the street...all are entwined in a story told "in Ragtime style, mixing fact and fiction. It's a memorable trip." (People magazine).

For a chance to win one of five books, write kelsey.lawrence@stmartins.com.
