July 12, 2016 / GOTY 2017, other book news
Amazon listings for Girl of the Year 2017 have appeared:
The author, Teresa E. Harris, is a woman of color and the books she has written have featured protagonists of color, so there is a possibility GOTY 2017 may be a girl of color.
There is a trio of books written by Kellen Hertz, who co-authored Lea and Camila with Lisa Yee:
The only information of note is that these three books appear to be targeting middle grade (ages 8-12) readers and seems to be an original series of contemporary fiction outside the GOTY line.
It bears repeating: this wiki has a zero-tolerance policy on rumors and speculation, and any form of rumormongering will get you banned.

Publishers Weekly reports American Girl and Scholastic have formed a partnership to publish both physical books and electronic books based on the BeForever and GOTY lines, starting in January 2017. This includes expanding upon and reissuing books for retired GOTY characters. A new line of historical nonfiction chapter books as well contemporary fiction from the forthcoming American Girl/Scholastic partnership is also in the works.

June 23, 2016 / WellieWishers, Truly Me, and Melody
The WellieWishers make their debut with their collection. Here is a rundown of what's available:
To promote the line's debut, all WellieWisher items are eligible for free shipping from now until July 31st. Furthermore, purchasing a doll and any small accessory set has a $5 discount, like 18" dolls.
The WellieWishers' three books will be released in September, though you can read previews on the WellieWishers portal on AmericanGirl.com.
The Truly Me line got a lot of new stuff:
American Girl has also made it a little easier to purchase a bald doll on their online store, though you will still need to call their customer service department to start the process.
Bitty Baby got only two outfits:
The BeForever line got nothing, though Melody's second volume and My Journey Book is now available, which means you can now get Melody's 3-book set if you held out on the first volume (or trade in the first book against the cost, if you just couldn't wait). The doll and her collection will be released in August this year.
It also appears that the Bitty Twins are on their way to retirement as related outfits and accessories are gone and only the dolls remain purchasable at the time of this writing. ETA: It has been confirmed that the Bitty Twins are now retired. Fare thee well, Bitty Twins.
No matter how exciting it is to see new items from American Girl, the rules of the wiki are the same: write well-written contributions for new or existing articles, and if someone comes in and removes or edits your work, don't be a drama queen. We don't tolerate poor writing or behavior, and if something needs to be debated, use that article's talk page.

June 16th, 2016 / WellieWishers Release Date and Final Character Name Confirmations
American Girl has released a preview for the WellieWishers line. The launch weekend is June 23-26th at all American Girl stores, and June 23 at the website, giving a short launch time. and included examples include additional outfits, playsets, and girl sized clothing based on the five main characters, including clear wellies (rainboots) and socks.
What does this bode for the release of Melody? So far, it's likely she'll be later this summer. As for the Bitty Twins, no information on their remaining is available at this time. We don't rumor mill, folk.
ETA: A prerelease article from Good Housekeeping has confirmed each of the WellieWishers; the last two are:
  • Kendall is the Black girl.
  • Camille is the blonde haired White girl.
