Victoria Scott (Author)
Available

Description

Ever since the Titans appeared in her Detroit neighborhood, Astrid Sullivan's world has revolved around the mechanical horses. It's not just the thrill of the race. It's the engineering of the horses themselves 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 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.

Reviews

Praise for Victoria Scott:
*Mind-blowingly intense. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Scott injects humor and heart for a can't-miss read. Where can I sign up for a Pandora? -- Kiersten White, author of the New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy
Scott holds her own in attitude and taut action, and Tella's voice is feminine, smart, and sassy. Importantly, although male-female chemistry is definitely present, the emotional drive of the novel doesn't rely on romance. Family, camaraderie, and Tella's bond with her furry Pandora companion matter just as much in getting her through the first part of her life-and-death race. -- Publishers Weekly
Non-stop action and thrilling adventure will keep readers turning the pages... Scott captures the essence of what it means to sacrifice one's self for a loved one. -- Voice of Youth Advocates
Tella is an especially strong and likable character, which makes this gripping adventure all the more enjoyable. -- Booklist
