Rumor has it that the next American Girl Historical character will be Rebecca, a Jewish girl from the late 1800s to early 1900s. Since that time period is very close to the one for Samantha, I wonder if the release of this new doll is the reason for Samantha’s archiving.

No word yet on a release date, author for her books or any other details. Again, this is just rumor (one that may have been substantiated though). Stay tuned for more. Or better yet, if you know anything, leave a comment.
