Dear America Wiki

My Name Is America is series of fictional journals published by Scholastic. It was the first spin-off of the Dear America series. It began in 1998 with The Journal of William Thomas Emerson and was cancelled in 2004 along with Dear America. The series was relaunched in March 2012 with a new edition of The Journal of Scott Pendleton Collins, re-titled We Were Heroes.

The series is similar to Dear America, but instead focuses on a male character instead of a female character. It also features many similar topics, including racism and immigration. My Name Is America also has several books set during wartime, including the American Revolution, the American Civil War, and World War II.
