I recently finished reading the Mia books. I know it is a little late but here is my review.
Mia: The plot for Mia’s first book is as follows. Mia is pressured by her brothers to stop figure skating and start hockey again.They say she has the skills to play hockey. Mia doesn’t want to play hockey and tells that to her brothers over and over again. When a new coach arrives to teach figure skating Mia is pushed harder than ever. Her new coach wants her to be in the winter show, but can Mia do it?
This book introduces Mia as a skater and important part of her family. If you love Mia then I reccomend this book to you. I had a wonderful time reading it.
Bravo, Mia!: After doing a spectacular job in the winter show Mia’s coach wants her to go to the regionals. Mia trains hard, but when her brothers hockey life interferes will Mia still be able to go? In this book the journey of Mia’s life go further still. With many setbacks and a family crisis will Mia hold on to her dream?
In my opinion this book is just as good as the first one if not better. The element of suspense is taking place as Mia struggles through her life. If you enjoyed the first book then you will love the second.

Chrissa, GOTY 2009, was rumored to have two best friends. Now, sources are saying that this rumor is true. Chrissa will have two best friends: Gwen and Sonali. Gwen is the blonde haired doll, Sonali the dark haired doll. This will be the first doll that has two best friends, and the first GOTY that has a best friend doll.
Also, Chrissa’s outfits were shown in an AG catalog. Is it me, or does her hair look darker in the pictures? It’s surprising that American Girl would show things they haven’t released yet for all of the world to see. Maybe they want people to get excited and want to buy Chrissa’s new things. Who knows?
Another thing, here is the link to the preview for Chrissa’s movie.
Thanks to Doll Diaries for all the nice pictures.
Today, as I went onto American Girl Collecting, I noticed that the blogger had a picture of Chrissa up! She is scheduled to come out on January 6th, 2009. Below is the idea of her books, and the struggles she’s going through.
Chrissa and her family have just moved to a new town in the middle of the school year. On the first day of school, she is seated next to three girls. All these girls do is tease her and play tricks on her. They bully her in class, on the bus, online, and at swim club. When the biggest bully becomes her swimming rival, she has to find a way to stick up for herself. Can she do it?
Chrissa Stands Strong
Thanks again to American Girl Collecting!
