Yesterday, Scoop Fairy Jenny shared on AGC the new book covers for the Beforever reprinting of the soon to come back 1774 character Felicity Merriman from the American Girl publishing website! We knew this spunky girl was coming back a few months ago when we first saw the book listings on Amazon. Felicity's original 6 books will be reprint in the standard 2 book Beforever format, with an additional 3rd "Choose your own adventure" journey book. I have updated the Master list of Leaked AG Releases with these covers.

Title: Love and Loyalty (book 1)
Author: Valerie Tripp
Price: $9.99 USD
Publish Date: Feb. 9th, 2017
Summary: Felicity loves riding horses far more than stitchery or serving tea. When she falls in love with a beautiful chestnut mare, she schemes to save the mare from its cruel owner with the help of Ben, her father’s young apprentice. Yet as talk of revolution rumbles around her, Felicity finds it harder to tell right from wrong. Ben wants war, while her best friend Elizabeth’s family remains loyal to the king. Then Felicity receives an invitation to the Governor’s Palace—and she must decide where her own loyalties lie. In Love and Loyalty, the first volume of her classic stories, Felicity finds out what independence really means as the American colonies begin their fight for freedom.

Author: Valerie Tripp

The two risk great danger to warn the colonists themselves and soon afterward, Felicity finds a secret note from Ben. He has run away to join George Washington’s army, and he is injured. Felicity is worried about him but knows it would be wrong to help a runaway apprentice. Then she is turned away from the door of her best friend, Elizabeth. Will the war for independence come between Felicity and her friends? A Stand for Independence, the second volume of Felicity’s classic stories, tells how she finds the strength to follow her heart during the Revolutionary War.

Summary: “My name is Felicity Merriman,” says a girl her age. Instead of shorts or jeans, she’s wearing a long blue gown. “Have you just arrived in the city?” She must be one of the junior interpreters, she thinks. She’s really good, like an actor. She decides to play along. “It seems so.” Felicity nods. “Many have arrived since the royal governor schemed to steal the colonists’ gunpowder in the dark of night. Patriots have been streaming into Williamsburg like a river in flood!” What if a girl suddenly found herself in Felicity’s world during the American Revolution? Together, she and Felicity could hang out at her father’s store, sip tea at the Governor’s Place—or get caught up in a gunpowder plot! As she reads, she decides what happens next by choosing her own path through this multiple-ending story.

They’ll journey to the American colonies where talks of revolution rumble, and the war for independence looms close to heart and home. Plots, balls, and midnight rides all come together in a story that shows how important it is to follow your heart. Then, they’ll travel back in time to meet Felicity in an exciting story that lets them choose what happens next!

New Purple Hot Air Balloon Pajamas for Truly Me

It looks like the Truly Me line will be getting a new sleepwear next year. Based off the leaked photos, the next set of pajamas seem much tamer and more realistic compared to the crazy PJs sets we've seen in past years. I have added it to the Master List of Leaked AG Releases. ^_^

Link to Master List of Leaked AG Releases:

eBay Photos:
This time the pajamas are purple themed, and feature hot air balloons. It looks like the set will come with a top, pajama bottoms, a ribbon headband, and fluffy slippers.

You can see the oval, plastic AG ego tag used for the Truly Me line in the bottom left hand corner of the photo. The shirt has a single hot air balloon in front of a cloud graphic. 

The pajama bottoms are covered in hot air balloons and clouds (is it safe to fly hot air balloons in such cloudy weather?) with elastic at the waistband. 

Fluffy slippers with surprisingly, not hot air balloons, but embroidered flowers detail. 

Simple ribbon headband

I really like this new pajamas set! I've always loved hot air balloons and this new set really embodies how whimsical they feel, perfect for sleepwear. It's also a relief that the design and style of these new pajamas are not as wild and crazy as the previous ones we've had. Hopefully the target market will like it as well! ^_^

Photos of Contemporary Character Tenney Grant's Wardrobe

Here are the photos a fellow collector sent me of some of the pieces she was able to piece together from the new Contemporary Character Tenney Grant, set to debut next spring. These are just guesses, and none of them are confirmed to be for Tenney. Since she is from Tennessee, these were the leaked outfits without the Truly Me tag who seem to fit that theme. It is possible that some of these pieces could also be for Girl of the Year 2017 Gabriela, or even the Truly Me line despite not having the oval tag. Keep in mind nothing is certain til AG officially releases it.

Collector Photos of Tenney's Wardrobe:

This outfit will also come with sparkle boots and a sparkly star headband.

This black & white shirt is for Truly Me, not Tenney. It has the plastic oval ego tag AG uses for the Truly Me line. The leather skirt seems like it will be for Tenney and it was shown in the grey market leak photos as being paired with the button up shirt in the photo below.
You can see more photos of the skirt & button up shirt here:

I am not sure if the button up shirt is for Tenney herself, or the boy doll Logan, Tenney's drummer friend. I am leaning towards it being for Tenney because in the photos AG leaked of what looked like a movie set for Tenney, the actress playing her was wearing a similar button up shirt in this color. In addition it was also paired with the leather skirt in the grey market leak photos as well.
The outfit underneath is a "Play Loud" shirt with a drum graphic on it, strongly hinting it could be for Logan, Tenney's male drummer friend. 
You can see more photos of Play Loud outfit for Logan here:

This looks to be the possible PJs set for Tenney. It's 100% not for GOTY 2017 Gabriela, as the stock photo for her sleepwear already leaked, and it doesn't seem like it's for the Truly Me line either.

Although Tenney the character and her story don't interest me, I like some of the outfits she has and will be picking some of them up, along with any well made instruments.

Stock Photos for Girl of the Year 2017 Gabriela McBride

A lot of you know that over the weekend, some stock photos for next year's Girl of the Year 2017 Gabriela McBride and her collection leaked and started making the rounds on social media. I wanted to wait til the source I originally saw post the leak OK'd it before I posted them here. ^_^

Link to Master List of Leaked AG Releases:

Stock Photos for GOTY 2017 Gabriela:
Gabriela McBride Doll & Book
I don't know if it's just me and my eyes playing tricks on me, but for some reason Gabriela's hair looks more relaxed and not as "sausage" tight curled as #46's hair, which is nice because for me at least, it gives her an older girl look. ^_^

Probably Meet/Dance Practice Accessories

Tap Shoes from Tap Outfit
These appear to be the same design as the tap shoes from Molly's Miss Victory Costume, only with silver glitter and a purple bow. They most likely go with the purple sparkly leaked outfit we saw earlier this year.

Pajamas Set
I'm really glad that AG is doing stock photos of her hair in different styles and hope her other photos will show different ways to wear her hair as well. I know a lot of people are intimidated by the idea of handling her curls and I think it's great to show that Gabriela's hair is not limited in versatility just because it's textured and curly. 

Pet Cat
Okay, I'm a dog person myself, but I love the sort of derpy, silly expression this cat has. Also... all that fluff. *_* Fluff.

I'm curious to see what the other outfits she'll have in her collection are (probably a practice or performance outfit, something for everyday wear, a hairstyling set), and what her medium & big ticket items will be! I'd love to see more accessories for her poetry (books pleaaaaase AG!) and not just only her dance hobby. I'm also wondering if she'll have an "exclusive" earrings set too like Grace and Lea did, and also hopefully a movie. We haven't had any leaks/info about a movie for her so I'm worried American Girl might be trying to get away with not giving her one. :/
