GOTY 2016’s Books on Amazon

GOTY 2016 will have 3 books, written by Lisa Yee, the author of the Kanani books.

GOTY 2016 has a connection to Brazil, rainforests and possibly the Olympics.

Her book titles are:

“GOTY Dives In
GOTY Leads the Way
GOTY and Camila “

Here’s a summary of the GOTY and Camila:

“For spring break, GOTY 2016 has invited her friend Camila to St. Louis for a stateside adventure. They find a stray kitten and make a mysterious discovery while visiting a grand but crumbling mansion. GOTY 2016 is determined to uncover the secrets of her discovery, but in her search for clues she forgets to be a good host to Camila. And when GOTY 2016’s best friend, Abby, becomes fast friends with Camila, GOTY 2016 feels a little left out. Can she find a way to reconnect with her friends — and solve the mystery, too?”

I am waiting to find out more about her story line.. It doesn’t seem all that interesting to me yet.

Yes! I don’t like the next GOTY!! So far…. I’ll wait until I see the 18″ doll to make a decision… I really hope I don’t like her so I can give a little more love to Kanani and Kaya. They have barely anything from their collections.

AG Doll Artist About AG Doll Artist

Hey, I'm Dara! I'm the main blogger here at Small Dolls in a Big World. I love sewing, drawing, and photographing my dolls. I started this blog in 2014 and have been blogging ever since. :) A lot of the time you can find me on Instagram where I share my latest work. (@americangirldollartist)


  1. I agree with you, AGdollartist. I don’t really like anything I’ve seen and heard about GOTY 2016. I probably won’t buy her unless she’s REALLY pretty. The same goes for her collection. But I think it would be cool if she went to visit the Olympics. That could be one of the reasons why she goes to Brazil. 🙂

  2. I have seen auditions for GOTY16 and now book descriptions. The two don’t seem connected but maybe the movie is about books 1 and 2. What do you think?

  3. I’ve seen pictures of the 18″ doll, and I think she is beautiful. She has the same skin tone as Kanani. 😀 I probably will not buy her, though, just because I’m not as into dolls as I used to be and will probably only get one more doll before my AG collection stops adding new additions. 😉

  4. The premise for “GOTY Dives In” is absolutely terrible. I think they should have used the captive brother plot for the first book. It would show the character as strong and empowering, not vulnerable. While that isn’t necessarily a bad trait, it’s not that interesting. I do like though that the main themes for her books are nature, science, travel and adventure.
