Courtney Changes the Game (American Girl)
Courtney Moore is the best gamer at the arcade. But she can’t understand why there aren’t more girl characters. When Courtney imagines her own video game, the hero is a girl who knows how to handle any situation. If only I was like that in real life, Courtney wishes. Her dad’s moving for a job, so Courtney won’t be living with him on the weekends anymore. That’s causing a big problem with her stepsister, who doesn’t like sharing a room with Courtney—or her guinea pig. When her mom announces that she’s running for mayor, Courtney’s blended family has to learn to work together differently. It’s a whole new game for Courtney, and she’s figuring out the rules as she goes.
Historical fiction at its finest for girls. These books each focus on a different American girl from a particular time in American history, each with a different lifestyle, heritage, hopes, and desires. These are popular with their audiences because the girls are so easy to identify with and the stories realistically portray what life was like at that time with events, styles and culture expertly interwoven. Our girls devoured these when they were younger, and although the series has undergone some changes, the stories are still available for a whole new generation. There are two books available for each historical girl and are abridged. The softcover books are formatted like chapter books (104-110 pages) with full-color illustrations and several pages of additional historical content at the end. Please note that the series is changing from "Beforever" to newer editions with each girl's name featured more prominently on the cover and our inventory will gradually change to the new editions.
