And Round Two begins with a World War II Match: Bomb v. Code Name Verity, judged by Donna Jo Napoli.
I had predicted just this match, and as for the outcome: “Prediction: The power of Code Name Verity compels me to say it will be selected.”
You all may remember just how I feel about Code Name Verity.
What did Judge Napoli select?
I’m sobbing in the corner. Julie…. Maddie…. I can’t even. It’s just, that —
I mean, Kiss me, Hardy. Fly the plane, Maddie. And leave the window open and I’m not sure what I’m more upset about, that a certain judge whose name rhymes with Mapoli did not pick Code Name Verity or that for a second time I was wrong or that CODE NAME VERITY, yes, Code Name Verity is out.
Why? I don’t know. I really don’t: I skipped to the end of the post and read “I vote for Bomb” and haven’t stopped sulking long enough to read it.
