My Review: After being told that this isn't the best collection of American Girls, I took it upon myself to get the first 3 books of it and read them... for my 12X12 challenge which is now complete. But back to the books... I love Kaya, she has such a sense of family and rebellious streak. Yes she gets in trouble but who doesn't at that age. Plus I love the stories they tell each other and the crafts plus horses yay. I will be probody finishing this collection soon!
