A new author, Kellen Hertz, has partnered with American Girl. She will be writing a new series of books by American Girl, titled “MG” on Amazon. People have guessed the letters stand for “Middle Grade” or “Modern Girl.” No one knows for sure yet.
There is no description or listing photos on the Amazon book listings, but it states the books are “A new middle grade series featuring contemporary characters!” Currently, there is 2 novels, and a character journal filled with doodles, lists, recipes, and journal entries.
These books are scheduled to be released by Amazon on Jaunuary 31st, which is a Tuesday. AG never released things on a Tuesday, so I’m guess they’re going to be released a few days later. They could be released any week, though. I don’t know for sure.
The character of these series is rumored to be named Tenny. She’s a singer from Tennessee, and she may have a little brother named Logan.
If this is true, it will answer both the “modern character” and the “boy doll” rumors .
I don’t like the idea of a modern character, especially one from Tennessee who likes to sing. I think that’s a little boring, because I’m not into singing, and American Girl is just about to release Melody, who’s story is mainly about music.
Oh! Melody is set to be released on August 25th! Right now that seems so far away though.
What do you guys think about all this? I’m interested to see which direction American Girl is going to take over the next few years.
