Here is a picture of my own two girls enjoying a slumber party movie night while watching this movie!
We are really big fans of American Girl and this movie was a huge hit with us all (even dear old dad watched and enjoyed it). We especially love seeing a more adventurous girl. If you have a fan of American Girl at home than this movie is a must-see. The girl of the year is brave, adventurous and really fun.
