->All my life, I always wanted to be a reporter.
-->-- '''Kit Kittredge'''
After the successes of the first few [[MadeForTVMovie television films]] based on the ''Literature/AmericanGirlsCollection'', the company saw the potential of a theatrical feature based on one of their historical characters. Starring Creator/AbigailBreslin as [[Literature/AmericanGirlsKit Kit Kittredge]], the film chronicles the life of the eponymous character as she aspires to be reporter, all while thwarting a series of robberies blamed on the hobo community.

!!The film provides examples of:
* AdaptedOut: Charlie and Aunt Millie both function as TheGhost; they're referred to, but you only see Charlie in a photograph in the background. Other characters have their significance cut down (Uncle Hendrick and Roger each only have a scene or two) but remain in the story. All of the pets except Kit's dog Grace are AdaptedOut.
* AlternateContinuity: Elements from the main book series are incorporated in the film, but unlike the earlier films that are more or less based on the original source material, this one largely discards the Central Series in favour of an original plot with new characters thrown in.
* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: Averted, though certain later films in the series did receive higher ratings due to violence or sensitive subject matter such as bullying or racism, as in the case of ''Chrissa Stands Strong'' and ''Melody 1963: Love Has To Win'' respectively.
* CanonForeigner: A number of characters, namely Countee, Mr. Berk, Miss May Dooley and Miss Lucinda amongst others, were created exclusively for the movie and are not present in the main book canon.
* GenreShift: Kit's movie is mostly a historical drama, but detours into a kid-power mystery adventure with villains [[CanonForeigner not present in the books]].
* GirlinessUpgrade: Kit states that she doesn't like pink in the original books, and her collection originally reflected this with no pink outfits and items. Once her movie came out, [[OutofCharacterMoment Kit got a batch of pink outfits and a pink blanket]].
* TheGreatDepression: The setting.
