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.

Review: Welcome To Camden Falls (Main Street #1)

User Review  - Kelsie - Goodreads

I remember that this was the first time I ever truly fell in love with a book series!! I read them first when I was about 10, and I continue to reread them now, as a 16 year old. It just never gets old for me. Love Ann M. Martins style of writing, it makes me wish Camden Falls was real! Read full review
