Left Bank Books welcomes bestselling children’s book author Doreen Cronin, who will sign and discuss her debut middle-grade novel, “Cyclone”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Cyclone” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Riding the Cyclone, the world famous Coney Island rollercoaster, was supposed to be the highlight of Nora’s summer. But right after they disembark, Nora’s cousin Riley falls to the ground…and doesn’t get up. Nora had begged and dragged Riley onto the ride, and no matter what the doctors say, that she had a heart condition, that it could have happened at any time, Nora knows it was her fault. Then, as Riley comes out of her coma, she’s not really Riley at all. Nora, guilt eating her up on the inside worse than a Coney Island hotdog, thinks she knows how to get 100% Riley back. But what Nora doesn’t realize is that the guilt will only get worse as that percentage rises.
