Julie, The New American Girl Doll
Julie, The New American Girl now has her own book out! It’s so exciting! I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m going to get this book right away! Here’s the excerpt from the American Girl website:
Julie Albright doesn’t want to move away from her San Francisco neighborhood near Chinatown, even if her new apartment is just a few miles away. Moving means leaving her best friend, Ivy, and her pet rabbit, Nutmeg. Worst of all, it means leaving Dad, now that her parents are divorced. Julie tries to make the best of it by joining the school’s basketball team, but the coach won’t allow girls to play. She learns that it’s up to her to make positive changes in her new school—and her new life. The “Looking Back” section discusses the women’s movement, divorce, and other issues of the turbulent 1970s.
Happy reading! I know a lot of you will be getting the doll!
