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.
