Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-6- Ann M. Martin's series revolves around four friends-Olivia, Nicky, Flora, and Flora's younger sister, Ruby-living in the small town of Camden Falls. Flora and Ruby moved to the town to live with their grandmother after their parents were killed in a car accident. In this episode (Scholastic, pap. 2008), the girls experience a number of challenges and changes. When Annika, Flora's best friend from her former town, comes to visit Camden Falls during its 350th birthday celebration, friendships are put in jeopardy. Annika and Olivia, Flora's new best friend, don't get along. The girls are jealous of each other and Flora is caught in the middle. While the story primarily deals with this conflict, it also branches out into larger themes of community, dealing with difficult challenges, helping each other despite differences, and the trepidation and excitement of transitioning from elementary to middle school. Ariadne Meyers creates unique voices for a variety of characters encompassing a wide span of ages and backgrounds. Although this title can stand completely on its own, listeners will probably want to listen to/read the first three books in the series. For school and public libraries.-April Mazza, Wayland Public Library, MA

I just can't stop reading these delightful stories! BEST FRIENDS is the fourth book in the MAIN STREET series, and it wraps up the first year Flora and Ruby have in Camden Falls.

Annika, Flora's best friend from her old life, is coming to visit. She will be there for the 350th anniversary celebration of the town. There will be a parade, a play where Ruby is the star, and many contests.

Flora has written a book of interviews of the older people in Camden Falls, Olivia has entered photos of native wildlife, and Nikki has entered her art, which is a first for the Sherman family. Flora is so excited to have all her best friends together at the same place -- until it actually happens and they all seem to hate each other.

These books are very simple but very entertaining. These girls have modern problems that most girls have, but are in no way boring. I love this series and can't wait for the next one.

Im sitting alone in the dark room. I should be thinking about whats going to happen o me but all i can think about is him. His kiss. His eyes. The w it feels when i am wrapped up in his arms and hes holding me close. I love him. The door slams open and i hold onto my memory of him. The drag me out of my cell. I refuse to cry even though i know what is waiting for me on the other side of the door. I have to tell this town what i did. I ki.lled the prince. I should feel bad but i dont. They tried to take my love away from me. They hit me till my vivion was black and fuzzy. I didnt know anything about the treasure they said was burried in my land. They hurt him. The prince hit him until he was coughing up blood and still they hit him. I had to. I had to save him. I couldnt let him die

The first three books were absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!! It talks about real life problems and to accept friends even if there family isn't well liked. It is a book that all ages 9-99 can read! It only took me about 3 weeks to read the first three books . I don't know if I can wait till April for the fourth book to come out. I'll keep myself occupied by reading Ann M. Martin's amazing books!
