Combining the heart of her Newbery Honor-winning fiction and the spirit of her legendary Baby-Sitters Club series, Ann M. Martin introduces a timeless new series for girls

Flora and Ruby do not want to move to Camden Falls. But they don't really have a choice -- their parents are dead and their grandmother, Min, is taking them in. It's strange to be in a new place. But luckily, it's a very welcoming place.
Min runs a sewing store, Needle & Thread, at the heart of Main Street in Camden Falls. There, Flora and Ruby become friends with Olivia, who likes to organize things, and Nikki, who lives on the wrong side of the tracks. Even if Flora and Ruby never expected it to, Camden Falls becomes their home...and its stories become a part of their stories.

    " Flora and Ruby's parents died in a car accident and now they have to move to Camden Falls to live with their grandma Min. Min has a sewing store and there they make two new friends, Olivia and Nikki. Maybe Camden Falls isn't so bad after all! I think it is a good book for a 9-10 year old. "

    " I have no sisters, but a cousin who is pretty much just the same. The age difference to my cousin and I and Flora and Ruby are about the same, and Min is exactly as energetic and fun as our grandmother! I think that the fact that they are about the same age as my cousin and I really adds to the interest because they act sort of like us and relate to us in some ways. "
