Combining the heart of her Newbery Honor-winning fiction and the spirit of her legendary Baby-Sitters Club series, Ann M. Martin introduces a timeless new series for girls.
Flora and Ruby do not want to move to Camden Falls. But they don't really have a choice -- their parents are dead and their grandmother, Min, is taking them in. It's strange to be in a new place. But luckily, it's a very welcoming place.
Min runs a sewing store, Needle & Thread, at the heart of Main Street in Camden Falls. There, Flora and Ruby become friends with Olivia, who likes to organize things, and Nikki, who lives on the wrong side of the tracks. Even if Flora and Ruby never expected it to, Camden Falls becomes their home . . . and its stories become a part of their stories.

Ann Martin once again has her finger on the pulse of girls aged 8-12. Her first title in this new series will win instant fans. Ariadne Meyers's narration is just as captivating. She succeeds at the sizable task of capturing the story of Flora and Ruby, who move to a New England town after their parents' death and are welcomed by a large cast of characters. Meyers presents us with thoughtful older sister Flora and younger Ruby, whose tumult of feelings rockets from one extreme to another. In addition, Meyers gives a convincing portrayal of the girls' grandmother, several friends, and a boy with Down's syndrome. Meyers is gifted in the nuances of feelings, helping listeners empathize with these characters. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
