The Battle of the (Kids') Books has moved into Round Three with an unexpected turn (at least for this blogger). Charles and Emma will have to stay behind. The Lost Conspiracy moves into the finals.
The Lost Conspiracy kept me thinking long after I read it. Its characters, including the volcanoes, were clever and deep. But I fell in love with Charles and Emma and their children and their struggles and their Victorian life. It saddens me to leave them behind.
Megan Whalen Turner gives her reasoning in today's post. Read it. Read Charles and Emma and The Lost Conspiracy. Read ALL the books in this contest. You will not regret it.
