American Girl of the Year 2010

Back in August, I spoke to you about the next GOTY doll for 2010. We learned that the author Jane Kurtz has written a book and preorders on to books were available on Amazon.  Ms. Kurtz’s childhood in eastern Ethopia and based on her previous books in which she  primarily writes books about African American children.  We have come to a conclusion that the next GOTY will be African American.    

The lastest news we heard and thanks Maria for the tip is her first name to be “LANIE”   The books titles  are “Lanie’s Real Adventure”  and “Lanie”  There is still no pics on the cover of the books. :(

Arianna did some research on the name and came across with 2 origins,  Greek and French.  They both had the same meaning, Torch; bright light.

I will keep you posted on any new information that comes up.  Also if you come  across any info, drop us a line.

I bet Arianna and I are not alone felling a bit anxious for a peek on Lanie.
