Latest American Girl Leaks: Nanea, Tenney, Z, and More!
Hello, everyone! It's definitely been a while since I last posted, hasn't it? I'd like to apologize for being away from the blog world this past two weeks. As usual, life has been busy! Our old house sold last week, and we've extremely busy trying to move out a few things (well, actually a lot of things) that were stored over there. But now that we're finally done, I am ready to get back to posting, and hear what's new with all of you! ☺️
Since American Girl is releasing quite a few new characters this year, recent leaks and rumors have been popping up everywhere. Nanea, Truly Me, Tenney, Z... the list goes on and on! 😛 However, not too long ago, several book covers leaked, offering us a peek at what's happening soon with American Girl!
Growing Up with Aloha: A Nanea Classic 1
Nine-year-old Nanea may be the youngest in her family, but she still wants to "dip her paddle in" and be useful. She knows she's grown-up enough to help in her grandparents' market. But before she can prove that she's ready for more responsibility, the unthinkable happens: Japan attacks Pearl Harbor, the naval base where her father works, and America is at war! With friends and family missing, and rumors of more attacks to come, Nanea worries―will life ever be the same again?
Nanea's Dress is so beautiful! 😍
Hula for the Home Front: A Nanea Classic 2
Nanea had hoped that going back to school would make life seem normal again. But everything has changed since the war, including Miss Smith's wonderful classroom. Nanea's dear friend Donna is gone, and now there's a new girl who seems to be getting all of Miss Smith's attention. There are also worries at home as Nanea's big brother talks about joining the Army. Nanea can't bear the thought of him leaving. In the swirl of changes, Nanea turns to hula. Dancing always makes her feel better. Then, Nanea gets a big idea―could hula help lift the spirits of the soldiers, too?
Prints in the Sand: My Journey with Nanea
The puka shells jingle in my hand. I don't want to lose them, so I slide the necklace over my head. But as I pull my hair out from under the string of shells, the ground drops from beneath my feet. I feel the whoosh of an ocean breeze, and then a pink mist covers my eyes . . . What if you suddenly found yourself in Nanea's hometown of Honolulu during World War Two? Together, you and Nanea could send secret messages for the war effort or work in a Victory Garden. You could learn how to hula dance or help a lost dog. As you read, you decide what happens by choosing your own path through this multiple-ending story.

The Nanea Mini doll has leaked! She is adorable, and so unique and different from the previous AG Minis.
A Song for the Season (American Girl: Tenney Grant, Book 4)
Buckle your seatbelts--In this fourth book in the series, Tenney & Logan are taking their show on the road! Christmas is just around the corner, and Tenney can't wait to share their music with fans all over Tennessee. But being on the road is harder than she expected--she's missing out on her favorite holiday traditions at home. . . and why is Logan being such a scrooge? After a series of disappointments, the duo begins to crack under pressure. Can they save the tour--and their holiday spirit--in time for Christmas?
The Tenney Mini Doll is now available on Amazon! Currently, she is on sale for $16.45, so be sure to snatch her up while you can! 😉
Gabriela: Time for Change (American Girl: Girl of the Year 2017, Book 3)
Gabby has never been so busy! In this third novel featuring American Girl's 2017 Girl of the Year, Gabby is already juggling homework, school leadership activities, dance classes, and rehearsals for a spoken word competition when she's offered an exciting dance opportunity. It's too good to pass up, but soon, Gabby finds there aren't enough hours in the day to do it all, let alone be a good friend to her BFF, Teagen. And she can't help but notice that more and more, she wishes she were working on her poetry instead of doing pliés and grand jetés. Gabby's changed a lot this past year. By the time the competition rolls around, she begins to wonder--have her dreams changed, too?
The Gabriela Mini Doll has also leaked on Amazon. I must admit, she's pretty cute!
Z On Location (American Girl: Z Yang, Book 2)
In her second novel, Z is thrilled to be going on the road to help her mom film a documentary. She might even get to interview her vlogging idol, Winter Costello, at VidCon! Eager to share her summer adventure with her friends and vlog fans, Z keeps her phone and camera at the ready. But she finds that working on a real film set takes more focus than she expected. When her love of connecting online threatens to ruin her chances of connecting in real life with her idol and fans, Z faces the ultimate test: Can she survive off-line and learn to #liveinthemoment?
You can now view the trailer for Z's Amazon short film (An American Girl Story: Summer Camp, Friends for Life) on Amazon's Kid's Youtube Channel! Z's feature film will debut June 9th.
Personally, I'm a little confused by this, but that's not a surprise. Previous AG Amazon movies have been different from the original storylines as well. 😛
And for last, I saved the most unique leak... 😉
The very first book from the new series, "American Girl Like Sisters", debuting August 29th. At first, I was really surprised by this- a super cute book, but no doll to go with it? Then another thought struck me; could this be a "story starter" for the upcoming Truly Me Customization line? Possibly! I'm very interested to see how this will unfold in the next few months, but until then, let's check out the book summary.
Emma Moves In (American Girl Like Sisters #1)
Three girls. Two families. One incredible friendship pact. Emma has always loved spending time with her cousins, twin sisters Sofia and Zoe. Even though Emma lives 3,000 miles away, when they're together, it's like no time has passed. At a family reunion, the girls' parents have a big announcement: Emma's family is moving back to town--the three girls will finally live in the same place after all these years! Their parents are turning an old family home into a charming bed and breakfast. Sofia and Zoe are thrilled. Emma is looking forward to the move, but is secretly worried that her whole life is about to change in a big way. And it is. But the changes about to happen are both more wonderful and more challenging than any of the girls are expecting!
Wow- So many exciting leaks in one post! 👍 I'm excited to see new American Girl books and characters, but also concerned how this will affect AG's business. There have been so many releases and debuts as of this year, and somehow it doesn't seem so exclusive or special anymore. 😕 I'm hoping things will start looking better soon.
