New World By Us Book Information! (Evette and Maritza)

More information is coming out about the World By Us books!


Evette's book, Evette: The River and Me, now has a summary and categories:


"Evette learns the rift in her family was caused by racism and organizes a river cleanup where she invites her friends and family, including both of her grandmothers, hoping they can make amends."


The categories are racially mixed people, friendship, racism, and conservation of natural resources. It seems from this that Evette will be racially mixed and have an interest in nature, including conservation.


Maritza's book information has also been published in the Library of Congress. It is called 'Lead with Your Heart' and has this summary:


"Seventh-grader Maritza Ochoa learns to lead on and off the soccer field as she organizes community support for her teammate Violeta whose family member is being detained by immigration officials and who has a secret of her own Maritza promises to keep."


The book is written by Angela Cervantes and illustrated by Caroline Garcia. Angela is a middle-grade author who is Mexican, and Caroline is a freelance illustrator from Brazil (and has some cool Miraculous fan art on her ArtStation).


The categories are Hispanic Americans, conduct of life (a fancy term for human behavior), immigrants, and soccer.


Who's excited about World By Us? I sure am!

Ok, here are my predictions for how the dolls will look!

Evette: Short curly caramel hair, Addy mold, dark to medium skin tone, freckles, shirt in some kind of natural-looking print, and jeans or leggings.

Maritza:Long black hair with brown highlights, medium skin tone, Josefina mold, pierced ears with studs, soccer themed shirt and sporty shorts.

I'm still upset that they keep sidelining our girls of color for contemporary lines instead of actually making them in the main lines like GOTY or historical brands.

I don't think that was the book cover. That was an illustration that the person made for an 19th century girl.
