Meet the Newest American Girl Dolls

According to the storyline, Cécile Rey, who is African American, and Marie-Grace Gardner, who is Causasian, are friends in New Orleans in 1853 when a yellow fever epidemic hits the city.

The newest American Girl dolls are plucky and resourceful, but they both get yellow fever and die. They cost $100 and come with little fans and replica mausoleums. Just kidding, they “live.”
