My 8 year old daughter received this as a gift. We love to read in our house and we also love American Girl. Manners are a must with us too so I was delighted with this gift...Until my daughter got to page 28 and the topic was "nosy" questions. I was absolutely appalled to see the example A.G. used. "I heard your cousin COMMITTED SUICIDE" REALLY?!??!?! They could not come up with a better example of a nosy question? How about, "how much do you weigh" or how much money do you have in the bank". So there I was left to try to explain what SUICIDE is to my 8 year old and her sister who is 6! I have e-mailed AG to see how they would respond; but as of yet, I have not gotten an answer. In today's society there is no reason we should be discussing suicide with young girls. I am quite disturbed and will no longer purchase these books from them.
