Meet Outfit

Sonali wears her meet outfit on the cover of Chrissa Stands Strong. In that book, she wears the dress to the anti-bullying party at the end of Chrissa's stories. In the movie, she wears the dress at the debut of the fourth grade social studies project. The outfit corresponds with Gwen's meet outfit and Chrissa's Sundress.

Lime green panties with flower on hip and aqua topstitching.


Sonali came with the book Friends.


  • In both the book and movie, Sonali is portrayed as being fairer-skinned, with a tone closer to the "medium" skin tone used by American Girl. However, the doll has a very dark skin tone.
  • As of 2015, Marisol Luna, Jess McConnell, Sonali, and Kanani Akina have been the only Girls of the Year of color.
