Dreamland Social Club, by Tara Altebrando

Jane’s mother died years ago, but her little family is still reeling. After years spent traveling, Jane, her father, and her brother finally settle down in an inherited house on Coney Island, where things start to feel like home…even though they’re leaving in a year. While her father focuses on remodeling the boardwalk, Jane explores her mother’s old home. With the help of a tattooed boy named Leo, she starts discovering her mother’s past and uncovering the secrets of Coney Island. It turns out Jane might not want to leave when the year’s up, and she definitely doesn’t want her dad bulldozing her mother’s childhood memories.
