My Name Is America is series of fictional journals published by Scholastic. It was the first spin-off of the popular Dear America series of historical fiction books. 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.

Unlike Dear America, each book in My Name Is America focused on a male character. However, the series has featured similar topics, such as racism and immigration. Many of the books were set during a war, including the American Revolution, the American Civil War, and World War II.
