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
