Girl of the Year 2014 Ideas Part 2

A couple months ago we did a Girl of the Year 2014 Ideas post, and now it is time for a sequel to that post. 
We still have no physical description of GOTY 2014, but that should change in the next couple weeks.  We always have more coming in October.  Her name is not specified yet, but the most likely candidates are Teagan and Isabelle.  She will be a dancer, and now the summaries of her 3 (yes, 3!) books are up on Amazon:
American Girl GOTY 2014 Book 1 by Laurence Yep – GOTY 2014 is excited about starting her first year at the Anna Hart School of the Arts! But she can’t help comparing herself to her older sister, Jade, who attends the same school and is an amazing ballerina. GOTY 2014′s other classmates are equally talented, and she starts wondering whether she really belongs at her new school. She earns a role in the fall festival, but she struggles during rehearsals. Can GOTY 2014 learn how to focus less on those around her and more on her own dancing? With help from her sister and her friends, GOTY 2014 may discover a unique talent that she can truly call her own.
American Girl GOTY 2014 Book 2 by Laurence Yep – As GOTY 2014 rehearses her ballet routine for The Nutcracker, she wonders if she’ll ever master her pirouettes, especially with her classmate Renata pointing out her every mistake. She tries focusing on the other parts of the production she enjoys: exploring the costume and props room and helping out with costumes for some of the younger dancers. But when Jade, her big sister who also attends Anna Hart School of the Arts, becomes moody and withdrawn, GOTY 2014 taps into her design skills to try to find a solution for Jade. In the meantime, can GOTY 2014 find the confidence to tune out Renata and perfect her own performance, too?
American Girl GOTY 2014 Book 3 by Laurence Yep – GOTY 14 is doing great at the Anna Hart School of the Arts–her dancing idol Jackie Sanchez even invites her to go on tour! GOTY 2014 jumps on board, but she quickly finds that the traveling show has its challenges, not the least of which is bossy Renata who was invited to come, too. When the dance show suddenly starts falling apart, GOTY 2014 tries to help Jackie pull it back together–and begins to learn more about a mentor who encouraged Jackie to dance as a young girl. As GOTY taps into her talents to try to save the show, she not only discovers who inspired Jackie, but also how she, herself, can inspire those around her.

So, tada!  What we know so far!  Hopefully a physical description and name soon to come!
As for the vlog, we aren't going to do it, because it wasn't AG related and it was taking too long.  Sorry, we haven't done a real post in forever!
