New AG book information is out! Here we go:
There's a new AG book series that is not tied to dolls- Forever Friends! Here's the descriptions of the first two books, which will hit shelves on April 24, 2018.
Jasmine's Big Idea (Book 1)
Jasmine Arroyo loves volunteering with her veterinarian mom at the Kew Gardens Animal Shelter. When Jasmine learns that the shelter will have to turn away new animals unless it can raise funds to expand, she is determined to help in any way she can. Fortunately, Jasmine's best friends Sofia and Keiko want to help, too! The shelter is throwing a fundraiser and the girls decide to create a kids craft corner. They can draw pictures of all the shelter animals to help them find their forever homes. But when a new girl named Madison starts volunteering at the shelter, she starts to take over the group! Can Jasmine help the shelter without losing her friends?
Madison's New Buddy (Book 2)
The Kew Gardens animal shelter is starting a new project where they invite local school classes into the shelter to read to the dogs and cats. Being read to helps the animals feel calmer, which means they can be adopted faster. Madison is eager to help. There's just one problem. She's not a very strong reader, and she doesn't want her new classmates to find out-not even Jasmine, Keiko, or Sofia. When a very nervous dog arrives at the shelter, Madison worries that he won't get adopted. If reading aloud to him might help, than Madison is going to try-even if it means letting her friends in on her secret.
Here's the description of book 3 of the Like Sisters series (the first book comes out today, by the way! I'll ask Mom to take me to Barnes and Noble after school.): Zoe Is On The Air-

She and Emma will have viewers write in with questions about their lives that they'll answer right on the air! With Caitlin and Natalia helping behind the scenes, they'll have a surefire hit on their hands! And they do! Until their advice starts to backfire. . . Zoe has to figure out how to make things right--and fast!
