Mia St. Clair, a ten-year-old growing up in upstate New York, is the youngest child and only girl in a family of intensely competitive hockey-crazed boys.
Mia is a pretty good hockey player, but she’s tired of skating in her brothers’ shadows and has decided to pursue her passion for figure skating instead. Does she have what it takes to grow and compete as a figure skater?

Can she stay true to her heart and follow her own path? Help Mia prepare for her solo at the Winter Show by choosing a costume, picking the music, and designing the routine. Interact with other people in town and learn what it takes to win and lose with grace.

Parents need to know that this is a computer game based on an American Girl Doll. While the game play is easy enough for girls as young as 6, and the conversational prompts, once selected, are spoken aloud, you must be able to read to select them. Keep in mind your child’s ability to read the dialogue in deciding her readiness to play this game. Mia St. Clair is a good role model for little girls because she is willing to work hard for a goal, take on a job to help her family’s finances, and be nice to a girl who initially isn’t nice to her.
