Editor reviews

This second installment of Ann M. Martin's Main Street series provides a startlingly honest and humanistic portrayal Flora and Ruby, two sisters who move in with their grandmother after their parents die in a tragic accident and face head-on the distinctly preteen challenges of adapting to a new school, making new friends, and coping with loss.

Whether voicing Flora and Ruby's sagacious grandmother or a fellow student with Down syndrome, Ariadne Myers' skillful, dynamic performance makes this touching and highly entertaining coming-of-age story a must-listen for the preteen crowd.


It's autumn in Camden Falls, and Flora and Ruby are just starting to settle into the town. Flora is worried about spending the first Thanksgiving without their parents. Ruby is worried about getting a part in her school musical. And their new friends, Olivia and Nikki, are facing problems of their own. But the friendship that ties them together will also give them the strength to work things out - one stitch at a time.

Listened to it 1,000 times still great

I love the entire series and the author the narrator is so good I always think of her voice when I read the paperback editions
