I have listened to all the Main Street books available at Audible (see title of this post). The best thing, I think you can say about a reader is that she is very consistant. Her pace, characters, and voice quality are consistant, and that leads to a very favorable experience.

I urge all mothers to listen to these books with there tweenagers. Ms. Martin brings up adult themes (bullying, divorce, death, aging, special needs children, race and others) in a sensitive and positive way. These books lead to lively conversations with your children at an age when they might otherwise be tuning you out. It's a great way to see where they stand on issues, without having to ask direct questions. Thank you Ms. Martin! Please, Audible, add the other books in this series!
