(American Girl, Dec. 26, 2019)
In this first book of her series, catching waves on her board, Joss is all in, 100%. When the surf's up, she pops out her hearing aid, hops on her board, and paddles into the waves. Joss is stoked to enter a surfing video contest with her surf sister Sofia and Murph the surfing bulldog. If she can master a killer aerial like the frontside air and get her brother Dylan to catch it on video, maybe she'd even have a shot at winning. But Dylan throws her a curve: he dares her to try out for the cheer team. No way -- Joss can't see herself as a cheerleader. (What's with those ginormous hair bows, anyway?) She's 100% surfer girl, and Dylan knows it! Still, if she takes him up on his dare, then maybe he'll help her with her video . . . it's worth a try, right?
