The first entry in the Main Street series by Ann M. Martin (The Baby-Sitters’ Club) introduces us to Flora and Ruby, two preteen sisters who move to Camden Falls to live with their grandmother after the death of their parents.
Given a rounded, youthful-sounding performance by Ariadne Meyers, Welcome to Camden Falls follows these grieving sisters as they make new friends, including next-door neighbor Olivia, and Nikki, who comes from a rougher part of town.
Meyers brings Martin’s rich cast of characters to life with an array of voices and is convincing in her portrayals of both young and old characters.
