I had so much fun reading your responses to Which American Girl Historical Character Would You Like to Meet? that I decided to get your take on the Girl of the Year characters. I know most of you have not been collecting long enough to really have known all the girls of the year, but I do know that you all are such passionate doll fans that you have done the research, read the books, and looked at the pictures!

So, which American Girl of the Year would you most like to have as your best friend or whose story can you most relate to?
