Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

It's looking to be a hard holiday season for the girls of Main Street. For Flora and Ruby, it's the first Christmas without their parents around. For Olivia, gift giving and tree decorating must be balanced with the fact that both of her parents need jobs. And for Nikki, there's the presence of her mean, angry father to reckon with. Luckily, the girls have each other--and the community around them. As Camden Falls prepares for its annual festivities, Flora, Ruby, Olivia, and Nikki all find that the hard things become easier when there are family, friends, and neighbours to share things with. It's an unforgettable December for each of the girls--and an unforgettable story in an incomparable series.

"Christmas is coming to Camden Falls, and Flora and Ruby don't know how to feel about it. It's their first Christmas without their parents, and the memories are both happy and sad..."

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-After losing both of their parents in a car accident less than a year ago, sisters Flora and Ruby prepare to spend their first Christmas without them. Now living in Camden Falls with their grandmother Min, the girls are surrounded by thoughtful and caring neighbors, s their friends Nikki and Olivia, and get a surprise Christmas visit from Aunt Ally. The girls soon discover that they are not the only ones in Camden Falls facing challenges this Christmas season. In the third title ((Scholastic, pap. 2007) in Ann Martin's "Main Street" series, some of the difficulties facing the girls are mature in nature (abusive father, death, alcoholism), but the author handles each issue delicately, only touching on it, and the focus of the story remains on the caring relationships of the neighbors and friends. This heartwarming story, wonderfully narrated by actress Ariadne Meyers, will appeal to upper elementary girls and fans of the series.-Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
