Happy New Year’s Eve!! I can’t believe 2015 is all finished up (almost) and a new year is upon us. I am brining in the new year with Victoria Scott author of the upcoming Titans.
About the Book
By: Victoria Scott
Release Date: February 23rd 2016
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Ever since the Titans first appeared in her Detroit neighborhood, Astrid Sullivan’s world has revolved around the mechanical horses. She and her best friend have spent countless hours watching them and their jockeys practice on the track. It’s not just the thrill of the race. It’s the engineering of the horses and the way they’re programmed to seem so lifelike. The Titans are everything that fascinates Astrid, and nothing she’ll ever touch.
She hates them a little, too. Her dad lost everything betting on the Titans. And the races are a reminder of the gap between the rich jockeys who can afford the expensive machines to ride, and the working class friends and neighbors of Astrid’s who wager on them.
But when Astrid’s offered a chance to enter an early model Titan in this year’s derby, well, she decides to risk it all. Because for a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, it’s more than a chance at fame or money. Betting on herself is the only way she can see to hang on to everyone in the world she cares about.

Magnolia’s Tips for a Fashionable NYE
Although Astrid Sullivan is the main character in Titans, one would be wise to heed her best friend, Magnolia’s, fashion advice. Especially if you want to make the most of that countdown to 2016, and start off on the right Jimmy Choo (knock off).
Never doubt the glam power of a BFF on your arm. She’ll tell you whether your NYE attire is on-point, or suffering from DBF (Death by Fashion).
Don’t forget to accessorize. Especially those that belong on the crown of your head. Accessories, and ready-to-party hair for that matter, is tres importante.
Make a fashionable entrance. Forget muscle cars or limos. You need something memorable. How about the back of a lion? Or better yet, a Titan?
Whatever you do, don’t worry about a boy on NYE. If that jerk bag doesn’t behave, then find a cute replacement and pucker up when that bell drops. Because new years are the best time for new crushes (or no crushes!).
Remember, above all else, that looking glam on NYE is all about confidence. If you believe you’re bringing the thunder (which you are), they’ll believe it too. So work it, girl (or boy)!
Happy NYE, dolls! May your lipstick be fierce, your best friend loyal, and your midnight kiss knee-buckling. See you in 2016!
