I loved it!  Nov 26, 2007
It was really good. It wasn't as overrated as some of the other stories and it was funny and good for my younger cousins to read. They enjoyed it very much!
Lindsey--Not The Best Of American Girl Literature  Sep 19, 2006
Most of the American Girl Books are highly original and culturally sensitive. They are also authentic to the times in which the story takes place. They show girls learning to find their ways through many difficult life situations. The books depict wise parents and other extended family members being appropriate mentors to the girls.
Without doubt Lindsey is my least favorite American Girl book. It is not sensitive to Jewish values. Food fights among adults at major Judaic functions is not the norm, nor does it depict the Jewish value of honoring food and its presentation. Jews tend to elevate the function of a meal, not degrade it.
Without giving away the plot, I think it most inappropriate for a ten-year-old girl to wander into a men's' bathroom to help out a relative who is not ill. I cannot imagine under what circumstances this type of behavior can be condoned or thought of as funny. The book was written in 2001. Certainly during that period of time, Chryssa Atkison, the author should be aware that men's bathrooms are dangerous, and a male relative should be called to help out an uncle in need of emotional support.
Lindsey's parents are highly involved in matters that don't allow them to see that their daughter is making several poor decisions. Yet there is little dignity in Lindsey's struggles. While other American Girls from other books are rescuing orphans, searching out and finding abducted blind sisters, learning to heal with herbs, fleeing from the tyranny of slavery during the Civil War, having to work in factories to support their orphaned siblings, Lindsey is busy rescuing lizards and match-making. This match-making is almost a cultural cliché to the point of insult to Jewish people.
Lindsey truly does not engage in her own culture either in an adversarial manner or in a joining manner. We do not see her redefining herself in terms of the modern times in regards to her own culture, at least not in a way that is important.
Evidently she has no Jewish friends. We don't see the family interact with the Jewish community.
The plot is poorly constructed, and the ending does not have the same sort of satisfactory conclusion of other American Girl stories. Most AG stories end with the American Girl having worked hard to achieve a large success, an almost impossible success. The American girl will find her voice and her influence on social situations that make a huge difference to her family and within the culture of her context and times..
This is the only Jewish representation by American Girl. Not even in the World War II book about Molly do we see Judaic issues. Other cultures are represented with sensitivity and dignity. Chryssa Atkinson, the author, has done the opposite with this book, and I am clearly disappointed.
18 years old, and I love it! =)  Jan 1, 2004
I have been very much "into" the American Girls Collection ever since I received my first doll (Samantha) at the age of 10. Now, at 18, I still love them and own 7 of the historical dolls and both of the contemporary "Girls of Today," Lindsey and Kailey.

I wasn't sure what to expect with Lindsey, the first limited edition doll, but of course I had to have her...and I truly do love this book! To me, it is absolutely hilarious--one of those stories that really makes you laugh out loud at parts. Lindsey Bergman is a great character--funny, charming, and irresistable. Her heart's in the right place, even though nothing else around her really is! Chryssa Atkinson did a great job with this book and really helped kick off the ongoing "limited edition" set of dolls that is now being offered through the company.

The people at American Girl have a pretty good thing going with this line of contemporary dolls. They started it up a few years ago with the assortment of dolls that you can choose everything for--the name, hair, eye and skin colors, and their story plots--but they took it up a notch when they introduced Lindsey. While it is wonderful that girls of all ages can be exposed to the historical aspects through the original dolls like Felicity and Samantha, it is also great to let today's girls know that they are important too. They will be an ultimate addition to history as well, and they have their own stories to share right now. The dolls Lindsey and Kailey have begun the collection, and I am sure that this new section of American Girl will be equally successful as everything before it.

But the real thing I wrote this review for was the Lindsey book, and I'd say that for girls, it's a wonderfully entertaining story to read; and for parents, it's a terrific book for you and your daughter(s) to share together. If I ever have little girls of my own, my dream is to share these dolls and books with them--both those of the past and those of today.

My eleven-year-old daughter loves it!  Nov 9, 2002
This book is the first book about the American Girl Today, Lindsey Bergman. Lindsey is nine-years-old, and is constantly trying to better the world around her; whether it's protecting animals from mistreatment, or beautifying the garbage cans on her street.

The other American Girls stories are written to present girls in other times throughout American history, in an interesting and realistic manner, and to teach lessons. Breaking that mould, this book presents a girl of today, a girl whose adventures are less than realistic, but quite humorous and entertaining. I must admit to being disappointed with this book, but my eleven-year-old daughter loves it! She liked the way that Lindsey bounced from adventure to adventure, and read the book through from cover to cover.

So, while I'm not enthused about this book, I am glad for any book that grabs my daughter's interest, and makes her want to read. This is just such a book.

This one hit a chord  Nov 9, 2002
My 8-yr-old daughter got this book as a gift, and she and I shared reading it over a few evenings. We both thought the story very funny and laughed out loud many times. I went to the book store and also online to find other books about this character, OR different stories by the same author. Struck out on both! :-( . . . . C'mon Chryssa Atkinson and Pleasant Company! We'd sure enjoy more!
