The Newest American Girl is Coming Soon
Her name is Rebecca--just like Becca Weeks (undisputedly my best friend as much as Meggar's). And she has long, brown hair which is naturally curly, too! Hmmm... Identical to our Becca! Except for the Jewish part. Rebecca Rubin is a Russian-Jewish immigrant growing up in New York City in 1914. (I still have a bit of an inside track with American Girl because I order their books for the Pony Express Museum to sell.) The new Rebecca will be available starting May 31, but even more exciting was a "sneak peek" mailer today. It was a mini-book featuring the first chapter of book 1, and Sarah was pleased to have it as her treasure.
