In this third book of the MAIN STREET series, Flora and Ruby are preparing for their first Christmas without their parents. Main Street in Camden Falls is enchanting during the holidays, filled with twinkling lights in frosted windows and the eager preparations of their grandmother and friends. Ariadne Meyers captures the mix of melancholy and excitement felt by Ruby and Flora. Meyers's voice is uniquely suited for adolescent girls, bursting with uncertainty and determination, but she is also skilled with older characters. Flora and Ruby's visiting aunt keeps herself at arm's length, but their senior citizen neighbors are charming despite the challenges they face during this Christmas season. Elementary and middle school girls may want to return to this heartwarming book every December, but be warned--it's a Santa spoiler. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
