American Girl’s BeForever series spotlights the stories of heroic girls who lived long ago. Through all the changes that turned their worlds upside down—wartime, immigration, clashes of culture and class—they discover the things that truly matter to girls of all times, like helping others, being a true friend, and standing up for what’s right. The BeForever line also includes historical mysteries filled with suspense, and a series of multi-ending “Journey” books, each narrated by a girl from today who goes back in time to meet and share experiences with a BeForever character.
