Hey everyone! What's up?
Lately, I've been doing a lot of research on Girl of the Year (GOTY) 2011.
Last month, I discovered her name is Kanani.
Over the past three or four days, I've found a lot of information from a lot of sites. Just google it.
Now, here's what I've found.
Her name is Kanani Akina. She's Hawaiin (I don't think I spelled that right), she's believed to have almond shaped hazel/brown eyes. Her hair will be a deep brown, and it will have natural goldish blonde streaks from being in the sun so much. Her skin is a little dark, and probably some of that is a tan. Her cousin Rachel comes to visit. At the moment, a lot of fans are wondering if Rachel will also be a doll, or if Kanani will have a best friend doll named Caroline.
I also have images of her books at the bottom. Once I have a picture of the doll, I'll add it.
Here's the summary of the first book, which is called Aloha, Kanani!
When Kanani's cousin Rachel comes to stay for a month, Kanani can't wait to show her what life is like in a friendly Hawaiian town from eating shave ice to snorkeling with sea turtles. But Rachel seems homesick and unhappy. Kanani tries hard to help Rachel feel at home and have fun, but nothing seems to work until an urgent animal rescue on the beach brings the girls together. Then, just as things are going well, a silly mistake threatens their fragile friendship. Kanani feels terrible and longs to reconnect with Rachel. But before she can truly help her cousin, Kanani herself must learn the real meaning of the aloha spirit.
The second book doesn't have a description at the moment. Now, enjoy these pictures! :)
