January 13, 2021 / More information on Courtney's Second Book
Information has appeared on Amazon regarding Courtney's second book, Courtney: Friendship Superhero. It confirms the name of her new friend, Issac Wells, and that he has HIV which causes a conflict between Courtney and her friend, Sarah.

December 23, 2020 / American Girl Diversity Initiatives Update
American Girl has shared a progress report regarding the Commitment to Racial Equality on their Instagram account and Facebook. Along with previous statements, the following has been stated:
The first of the conversation series is due to launch in February 2021 about social justice with the second in April regarding climate change. There will be continued featuring of other young heroes from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences.
August 2021 will bring a book written by Deanna Singh about fighting racism and becoming anti-racist.
Teams continue to work on the newly planned but not yet announced new contemporary line with more stories of diversity. The line is looking at a debut in the latter half of 2021.
New partnerships will later be announced as well.
2021 is also the 35th anniversary of American Girl. Let's hope the celebration is a good one with lots of diversity and good things.
December 23, 2020 / 2020 Girl of the Year Kira Bailey
American Girl has confirmed with their first catalog of 2021 that the 2021 Girl of the Year will be Kira Bailey. She is visiting her married aunts--as in, to each other--in Australia to help at their wildlife sanctuary post the Australian wildfires. New items are also launching for Truly Me including items focused on travel around the world, which will be a separate news post.
In the spirit of "not getting banned for leaks and nonsense", the admins ask that editors be cautious in their editing of new items. If you suspect what you're going to upload isn't open data, is poorly reviewed, or is otherwise hearsay and you can't back it up? Then maybe, just maybe, don't do it. The bans are still generous.
Kira Bailey loves animals a ton--she and her mother help foster kittens in her home state in Michigan. The Bailey Wildlife Sanctuary in Australia--currently owned by her two married great aunts, Lynette and Mamie--has been in Kira’s family since the 1800s and is located in Australia, where she spends the duration of her stories.
