Friends are forever, or so thought Flora Northrop. With the fourth installment of her Main Street series, Ann M. Martin - the Newberry Award-winning mastermind behind The Baby-Sitters Club series - delivers another heartwarming portrait of everyday life in Camden Falls. Flora’s old best friend, Annika, is visiting town and Flora couldn’t be more excited. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for Flora’s new best friend Olivia, who’s a little insecure about her status as Flora’s number one. Annika and Olivia don’t hit it off, and poor Flora winds up caught in the middle. Actress Ariadne Meyers lends depth and vibrancy to Martin’s tale, capturing the colorful, varied nature of Camden Falls’ population as she lends her versatile voice to stodgy schoolteachers, trusty shopkeepers, and sprightly sixth graders.
Flora's very excited...but her new best friend, Olivia, isn't. Olivia is afraid she won't measure up and that Flora will regret ever coming to Camden Falls. It's a very big reunion, set for a very big day - the town's 350th birthday celebration.
Annika and Olivia immediately start fighting, with Flora caught in the middle. Does one best friend truly have to be the best...or can they find a way to get along?
