1960s BeForever Melody Ellison Book Details & Chapter List

The first book for our newest historical 1960s BeForever character, Melody Ellison, is starting to appear a few bookstores.

The images include the cover, the list of chapters for book 1, as well as the descriptions for book 2 (Never Stop Singing), and the Journey book (Music in My Heart).

A full list of leaks and information for the 1960s Beforever character Melody Ellison is at the bottom of this post. ^_^

  1. Very exciting! I just sent the pics of the Lea book to you. Merry Christmas and Happy Dollidays!

    1. Thank you very much! I received them and replied to your email! ^_^

  2. Thank you for taking the time to post this, Lilly! I really appreciate it. (Thanks for giving me credit. That was nice of you.) :D Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!

    -American Girl Doll Crafter

    1. I really appreciate you taking the time to think of me and send me your images to share! ^_^ Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

  3. So if Big Momma and Big Poppa used to live in Alabama, that means they might have family in Birmingham, which means the big event was probably the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. Though it happened in 1963, so did the Walk to Freedom. It's a conspiracy! Merry Christmas :3

    1. Merry Christmas! A lot of the historical books don't match up with events in that year exactly, so it's definitely possible! ^_^

  4. This is really cool but I have no idea what this means. Is AG going to come out with Melody on January 1 or just the book earlier than the doll? Will they continue this pattern for other dolls? I want to know!

    1. I believe the first book is still coming out January 1st, and the doll, her collection, and her second book and Journey book will be released later in the year. As far as I know, this is the first time AG has ever done something like this.

  5. Exciting! Sounds like a GREAT book!, I'll definitely be getting her If she's as great as the book:) (I personally prefer the historical characters)

    1. I really do think she will blow us out of the water! ^_^ I'm a predominantly historical collector so I am super excited for her!

  6. where can I find the link to the books on amazon? I'd love to preorder them!

    1. Only the first book is available for preorder right now, and I have listed it above in the post. ^_^

  7. Wow, the books sound super exciting so far! Merry Christmas just a little late :)

    1. Same to you! ^_^

      The books really do sounds just so thrilling and interesting don't they?

  8. Hello Lissie and Lilly! At my store i found many new items that aren't on the website.would you like photos?

    1. Thank you for thinking of me! I would love to see any photos you would like to share. ^_^ You can email me at or send them to me through the L&L Facebook page, whichever is easier for you.

  9. Can't wait to see her! Happy New Year!

  10. Any idea when book 2 will be out? I write and publish curriculum for these books - would love to get book 2 asap

    1. Book 2, the journey book, and the doll and her collection will be out in July. :)
