December 24, 2015 / Melody Ellison, BeForever 2016
The January 1, 2016, release date for the newest BeForever character's Volume 1 initially seen on Amazon appears to be genuine as people have managed to find it in actual bookstores. Information from Lissie and Lilly states the newest BeForever character is a girl of color named Melody Ellison and her era is 1960s. It is still unknown when Melody's other books will be released or when her doll will make its debut.
As excited as we are for Lea and Melody in 2016, we still do not condone leaked images or speculation on the wiki and any such malarkey will be swiftly dealt with.
It appears that GOTY 2016 was leaked via a Scholastic book fair ad that revealed her name is Lea Clark, as reported from Lissie and Lilly. There are also additional leaks on YouTube that we're not posting here because of our zero-tolerance policy for leaked images/media and it should go without saying we don't tolerate speculation as well.
