*From the enlarged image of the mini doll, it seems for certain Maryellen's eye color will be green. It is yet unclear if it will be a new shade of green, the "laser" green (like Felicity's eyes), or the dark pinwheel green (like MyAG 41), or hazel.

Book 1: The One & Only
Description: Maryellen Larkin is nine years old and longs to stand out, but in a family with five brothers and sisters it's easy to get lost in the shuffle! A painting mishap gains her some attention, but not the kind she's been longing for. Being invited to stay in at recess and practice her handwriting earns Maryellen a new friend, but what does that mean for her old friendships? Then, Maryellen is wishing for a white Christmas like the ones in the movies (not very likely in Florida!). Will she find a way to make her dream come true?

Then, Dad comes home with a silver surprise and big plans for a family vacation. On the trip, what will Maryellen discover about Joan and her wedding plans? What will Maryellen decide about her own plans and "flying high?"

Close up of Eyes:
Comparison of Face Molds:
*Based off these comparisons I am assuming Maryellen will have the classic mold since her mini face shape is more similar to Caroline than Rebecca (who has the Josefina mold).*
Comparison of Eye Color:
Left: Rebecca's Eyes (Hazel)
Right: Maryellen's Eyes (?)
*Based off these comparison photos, it is very possible Maryellen may have the hazel eyes, but I think her eyes look more green still and am hoping they will use green eyes for her instead of hazel.*
