Ivy Cordelia is plain lucky. It's the summer of 1936, and she gets to stay in Atlantic City all summer long, where there's so much to see: boxing kangaroos, human cannonballs, card-playing cats . . . and high-diving horses! If there's anyone luckier than she is, it must be the girl on the high-diving horse, who daily performs her dangerous-looking act while the crowd cheers. Ivy's dream is to be that girl. But could she ever be that brave? The spun-candy-and-sea-spray world of the Atlantic City boardwalk in the 1930s once again comes powerfully to life under the nostalgic artistry of Ted Lewin and Linda Oatman High. Illustrated by Ted Lewin.
