Rebecca, The New Doll

Rebecca will be the next historical doll after Samantha and Nellie’s retirement. She is said to come out in late May or early June of this year. So far, there are no pictures of her, but Amazon already has the mini doll of her up (without a picture). What is known about Rebecca are her books, which are listed below:

Meet Rebecca

Changes for Rebecca

Candlelight for Rebecca

Rebecca to the Rescue

Rebecca and Ana (This could be her best friend…)

Rebecca and the Movies

As you can see, American Girl is using different titles for Rebecca’s books, instead of Meet Rebecca, Rebecca Learns a Lesson, etc. All of her books are written by Jacqueline Dembar Greene. I’ll keep you posted with more news of Rebecca.

The Runaway Friend: A Kirsten Mystery


As all of you probably know three new American girl mysteries came out in March. I have read The Runaway Friend, and want to give my opinions on it.

The plot of the book is as follows,

Kirsten Larson has just moved to Minnesota and is making friends. Her family is just getting settled. It is right before the harvest and Kirsten’s father and uncle have hired Erik Sandahl to help bring the wheat in. Suddenly Erik dissapears… This is not good for two reasons. One Erik owes Uncle Olav (Kirsten’s uncle) money, and two he has to help with the harvest before it rains and all the wheat is ruined.

In my opinion this book had a great plot and is fun to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries or is fond of Kirsten.
