Parent at the Helm’s


Angel Park

by Patricia Kokinos


Right out of today’s headlines, Angel Park tells the story of a corrupt and bureaucratic system that is stifling kids, teachers, and parents.  Follow the heroine, Constance Demetrios, as she plunges into the mystery of her boss’s death, struggling with a convoluted school system where politics is the name of the game and kids just don’t seem to matter anymore.  As bizarre events threaten to engulf her, too, Connie comes upon a startling discovery that transforms her life and shows her the kind of change that can save the future.

Innovative and eye-opening, Angel Park is also an award-winning novel:

  • Winner of Silver Seal from the Nautilus Awards for “positive social change” in the Visionary Fiction category and now part of the “Nautilus Library of Imagination and Possibility.”
  • National Finalist in Best New Fiction from the Indie Excellence Awards.
  • Honorable Mention in Mainstream Fiction from the American Authors Association with a five-star review.
  • IRWIN Award in Best Fiction category from Book Publicists of Southern California.
  • National Finalist for Book of the Year in Literary Fiction from Foreword Magazine.

“Angel Park pulls the covers off and shows the reader the naked truth about the deep-seated dysfunction inside American public education. This is a must read for those who have children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews in the public schools… I give the book a
TEN-STAR rating; five is not enough!”

–Shawn McDowell, inspirational speaker and author of “I See That You Are Down, But When Are You Going to Get Up?”


“After reading Angel Park many times, I am still uncovering hidden layers… If you ever wondered what really goes on in schools, this book provides the answers.  But be warned, Angel Park will challenge you in many ways.”

–Justin Heard, Program Chair in Educational Leadership, Touro University


“Angel Park is an artfully woven expose of the politics and corruption that keep students and teachers under the thumb of schools districts and unions.  A must read for everyone who wants to change schools for the better!”

–Larry Sand, President, California Teachers Empowerment Network
