Children Ages 10+ • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Ann Martin once again has her finger on the pulse of girls aged 8-12. Her first title in this new series will win instant fans. Ariadne Meyers's narration is just as captivating. She succeeds at the sizable task of capturing the story of Flora and Ruby, who move to a New England town after their parents' death and are welcomed by a large cast of characters. Meyers presents us with thoughtful older sister Flora and younger Ruby, whose tumult of feelings rockets from one extreme to another. In addition, Meyers gives a convincing portrayal of the girls' grandmother, several friends, and a boy with Down's syndrome. Meyers is gifted in the nuances of feelings, helping listeners empathize with these characters. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
