Flora, Ruby, Olivia, and Nikki start their own summer book club when well-loved books start appearing on their doorsteps in the fifth of Ann Martin's wonderful Main Street books.

Flora and Ruby are about to start their second summer in Camden Falls. An element of mystery is instantly added when someone -- the girls don't know who -- leaves copies of a very special book on their doorstop, with instructions to read and discuss it. Olivia and Nikki also get books, and soon the girls are starting their own book club -- with some very interesting ties between the books they're reading and the things they're facing over the summer. But who's their literary benefactor? The girls don't need to read Nancy Drew to track down the answer....

About the Author:

Ann M. Martin's The Baby-Sitters Club series sold over 176 million copies and inspired a generation of young readers. Her novels include the Main Street series, BELLE TEAL, the Newbery Honor book A CORNER OF THE UNIVERSE, HERE TODAY, A DOG'S LIFE, and ON CHRISTMAS EVE, as well as the much-loved collaborations P.S, LONGER LETTER LATER and SNAIL MAIL NO MORE with Paula Danziger, and THE DOLL PEOPLE and THE MEANEST DOLL IN THE WORLD, written with Laura Godwin and illustrated by Brian Selznick. She lives in upstate New York.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4–6—Ann Martin's series involves four friends in the small community of Camden Falls and exhibits her usual mix of impeccable prose and ease with today's slang. In this episode (Scholastic, pap. 2008), Flora, Ruby, Olivia, and Nikki find books that are mysteriously left at their door—Robert O'Brien's "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of N.I.M.H," Dorothy Canfield Fisher's "Understood Betsy," "Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry" by Mildred Taylor, and several others. Each book comes with a message telling them to read the book and do something new. Who could be sending these books? Before long, the four friends form a book club. Ariadne Meyers makes each girl's voice unique as well as those of the other characters. She perfectly slips in and out of dialogue and expository text. A must-have for fans of the series.—B. Allison Gray, Goleta Branch Library, Santa Barbara, CA
