The books in this collection tell the stories of three American girls who lived long ago:
--Kirsten, a pioneer girl of strength and spirit who settles on the frontier,
--Samantha, a bright Victorian beauty, an orphan raised by her wealthy grandmother,
--Molly, who schemes and dreams on the home front during World War II.
You can share their worlds -- the friends they make, the struggles and successes they have in school, the excitement of their Christmas secrets, their birthday celebrations, and their summer adventures. You'll see that some things in their lives are very different from yours. But others -- like families, friendships, and feelings -- haven't changed at all. These are the important things that American girls will always share. These are the traditions that come alive in the American Girls Collection.
