In this book the four friends Ruby,Flora,Olivia and Nikki find different books each week at the Needle and Thread store where their Grandma works. Soon the four girls get so much into the books that they can not stop until school starts again. The girls find out that Flora and Ruby's aunt is sending those books early in the morning. The four girls really enjoy this and hope to have more adventures in the future. ( )

How exciting it would be to have someone secretly send you and three other friends the same book, and then have an activity to do after each of you read it. That is what happens to Flora, Ruby, Olivia, and Nikki.

Someone is leaving books on the doorstep of Needle and Thread addressed to them for them to read over the summer. They read a lot of my favorite books, such as THE SECRET OF NIHM, THE SUMMER OF THE SWANS, and UNDERSTOOD BETSY.

The girls loved the idea, even Ruby, who doesn't like reading. They end up doing a lot of fun activities. The theme of the summer is bravery, and each girl does something which they wouldn't have normally done.

I really enjoy the MAIN STREET series. The books show life as an exciting adventure but in a very sweet way. It is like going back to my childhood where life was slow but a lot of fun. I like the main characters, who have a lot of depth and act like real kids. Maybe because these stories are told from the perspective of small town America they seem to be sweeter than most, and I would definitely want my children to have these experiences. These are worth the time so check them out. ( )

Flora, Ruby, Olivia, and Nikki start their own summer book club when well-loved books start appearing on their doorsteps in the fifth of Ann Martin's wonderful Main Street books.

Flora and Ruby are about to start their second summer in Camden Falls. An element of mystery is instantly added when someone -- the girls don't know who -- leaves copies of a very special book on their doorstop, with instructions to read and discuss it. Olivia and Nikki also get books, and soon the girls are starting their own book club -- with some very interesting ties between the books they're reading and the things they're facing over the summer. But who's their literary benefactor? The girls don't need to read Nancy Drew to track down the answer....
