Courtney Changes the Game (American Girl® Historical Characters) (Paperback)
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.
Kellen Hertz was raised by New Yorkers in Fresno, California. She decided to become a writer at age 10 after reading L. Frank Baum's Wizard of Oz series. Her unfinished first novel was tragically lost in a sea of library books on the floor of her room, forcing her to seek other employment. She is the author of American Girl's Courtney and Tenny series, as well as the coauthor of Lea and Camilla. Kellen loves vinage maps, strange names, strong coffee, and words and all the flavors they come in. Most of all, she loves her family. She lives with her husband and son in Los Angeles.
