I love my readers! You guys always find the best stuff. Here is a two page spread advertising the new American Girl Doll of the Year movie that will go with the doll. The title is Chrissa Stands Strong and will star Sammi Hanratty, Annabeth Gish, Timothy Bottoms, Don Franklin, Adair Tishler, Joanne Barron, Jennifer Tilly and Michael Learned. The movie is based on the Chrissa Stories by Mary Casanova.
The story will be about Chrissa Maxwell, a young girl who moves to a new school mid-year. She has to deal with making friends, dealing with bullies and standing up for yourself. Chrissa is a swimmer – which is where she has the most trouble with a rival. This looks like a great dvd and series for helping girls deal with real life issues – in school, in sports and even online.
The DVD comes out January 6, 2009.
