2016 Cannondale Catalyst 3
A carryover bike for 2017.  The Catalyst 3 is a superb entry level machine.  Cannondale did a good job with the spec considering a proper trail worthy fork alone costs twice as much as this entire bike!  The Catalyst will handle what it was designed for:  knocking around the neighborhood and getting the rider safely from point a to point b (and look good doing it).  Buy the Catalyst if you always look both ways before crossing the street, never use the word "bruh", always wear your seat belt and have never heard of the movie Pulp Fiction.  
You will read reviews that gripe about the fork performance and noise from the derailleur...  The reviewers were obviously pushing the bike beyond it's capabilities.  We've been selling the Catalyst for years with no issues.  The Disc brakes are incredibly powerful, quiet and smooth, the gears shift seamlessly, plus the bike handles like a dream.    
The Extra Small and Small sizes are excellent options for parents looking to squeeze their kid onto an adult bike (skipping over the cost of purchasing a size 24" kids bike).
