So, did Percy Jackson rise victorious? Or did almost invisible Hathin of the Lace tribe finally get the credit she deserves? Angela Johnson had to choose between The Last Olympian and The Lost Conspiracy today. Last-lost, lost - last? Which one won? Angela has to admit, like Julius Lester did a few days ago, that certain types of books just don't appeal to her. Her argument for her choice is convincing. But, I never had a doubt who would go on to the next round.
Hathin has received more accolades for her hard work, dedication, sisterly devotion and Machiavellian strategies. The Lost Conspiracy by Frances Hardinge will fight again. Sorry, Percy.
