InnerstarU Doll Giveaway at Joseph Beth Booksellers

I was at our local independent bookstore, Joseph Beth Booksellers, today and was so impressed with all the American Girl items they had. Better yet, they had a whole display complete with a doll giveaway as part of the InnerstarU launch. So, of course I put in an entry, and then took a closer look at the InnerstarU books.

There are four titles in the InnerstarU series so far (see below) and each  story is written to be interactive – meaning you pick the direction the story goes. The books also come with a bookmark and a code to be used in the Secret Endings Room at InnerstarU.com.  The code gives you access to even more endings for each story. I bought “Taking the Reins” for my daughter (aka Alex17 here on DollDiaries.com) and she absolutely loves the story so far. She was amazed at all the color illustrations through out the book, but her favorite feature was that the characters in the book are the guides at InnerstarU – so she immediately had a connection with them.

Have you read any of the books yet? Which one is your favorite? Also, has anyone had trouble entering the Secret Endings Room codes?
