So You Like THE AMERICAN GIRL BOOKS
(Covers link to the Goodreads pages.)
If you like Addy Walker... (1864)
And this is where everyone thinks I've gone crazy. Hear me out. A friend suggested Cinder for Addy, and I agreed. The cyborgs aren't entirely treated like slaves, but they are definitely treated like sub-par citizens, just like black people were.
If you like Samantha Parkington... (1904)
I chose Dorothy Must Die for two reasons: a) because I'm recommending it every chance I get, and b) because Samantha loves The Wizard of Oz so she would probably be interested in this twist on the original tale. (I also thought of A Mad, Wicked Folly and Cinders & Sapphires when considering books for her.)
If you like Rebecca Rubin... (1914)
Rebecca dreams of becoming an actress, so I thought a book that revolves around Hollywood (albeit 20 years later) would be a good choice for her.
If you like Kit Kittredge... (1934)
Kit loves the tale of Robin Hood, so I decided that this retelling would be a good fit for her. (Fun fact: I also considered On the Fence for her because of the protagonist's tomboyish personality.)
If you like Molly McIntire... (1944)
Set during the same era as Molly, Rose Under Fire is about a female pilot, something I think Molly would find interesting since her aunt became a pilot.
If you like Julie Albright... (1974)
Julie was alive smack dab in the middle of the feminist movement, and I think she'd appreciate these strong, intelligent females.
Well, that's everyone! I hope you found some new reads, and stay tuned for the next So You Like... Any votes on what you want it to be?
