Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
It a busy time in Camden Falls. There is the dog costume parade (arranged by Nikki to raise money for the animal shelter) and trick or treating on Halloween (which sends Ruby into a frenzy over choosing the perfect costume and has Flora and her friends feeling that maybe they are too old to go house to house now that they are in seventh grade). Olivia has a boyfriend and he has asked her to the Halloween Dance; Flora wonders why she does not have a boyfriend yet and whether she really wants one. And a new family has moved into the neighborhood. It has been a long time since there has been a new family in the Row Houses and Flora is excited to discover that the new girl, Willow Hamilton, is a seventh grader too. But it does not seem like Willow really wants to be friends. And there is something odd about Willow's mother. "Whoa," says Ruby when the Hamiltons disappear. "That is the weirdest mom in the universe." This seventh title in the "Main Street" series gives readers a glimpse into small town life and a peek behind closed doors where secrets are hidden. Lingering mysteries (why does Aunt Allie have a closet full of baby clothes) will leave fans eager to find out what happens next. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen

    Keeping Secrets

    Being a Main Street fan I had to get the book as soon as it came out. But if you think any questions from the last book will be answered-keeping waiting for book #8. A new character was introduced in this book-which mostly delt with her. I love Main Street books and will just have to keep waiting for the next one.

    It will be a great book for sure!!

    I am a huge fan of Ann Martin's book sereies Mainstreet.<BR/>I have read everyone and all them are funny, exciting and there is almost <BR/>always a mystery to figure out. There is only one thing that has upset me and it is why Ann Martin changed the cover design. It was the same for <BR/>1-5, but not for the 6th one or this new upcoming addition to the series: Keeping Secrets. But Mainstreet is still my favorite series ever and can not wait till Keeping Secrets comes out.

    Flora and Ruby are excited about the new family that is moving into the row houses. The family has two children. One is Willow, who is exactly the same age as Flora, Nikki, and Olivia.

    But this family is hiding a very scary and troublesome secret, which will impact the friendship of the girls.

    I liked this new book in the series. It was fast-moving, even with it being very small-townish.

    The characters are well-drawn, and the trouble in Willow's family is written with simplicity and understanding. Mental illness is a big problem in the United States and many girls can identify with Willow's problem.

    I always enjoy the simple joys these girls have and wish all kids could have these simple pleasures again. Flora and Ruby get excited about a dog parade, reading a good book, and just hanging out with each other.

    Keeping Secrets

    I think that Keeping Secrets is a great book, along with the Main Street sereis as a whole. This series is great for girls ages 10 to 13.
