Spring has arrived in Camden Falls, and with it have come many joys and challenges. As Flora and Ruby near the first anniversary of their arrival in town, Flora prepares for a visit from her old best friend. She's excited . . . but her new best friend, Olivia, isn't.

Does one best friend truly have to be the best . . . or can they find a way to get along?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
It is spring in Camden Falls and the end of the first year that orphaned sisters, Flora and Ruby, have spent with their grandmother. It is a busy spring full of endings and beginnings for the many people who live in this small town: 6th grade graduation, the Fong's soon-to-arrive baby, Sincerely Yours (the new store where Robert will start his first job), and the 350th anniversary of the founding of Camden Falls. Flora is looking forward to the much anticipated visit of her old best friend, Annika. Olivia, Flora's newest best friend, is less than thrilled about Annika's pending visit. Ruby is the star of The Witches of Camden Falls, a play based on an unfortunate period in the town's history. Nikki has her fingers crossed that her art work will win a prize and desperately hopes that her abusive father is out of the picture forever. This third volume in the "Main Street" series is an enjoyable glimpse of busy small town life. Hints of mysteries uncovered by Flora but left unsolved will leave fans eagerly waiting to find out what happens in the next volume. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen
