Gr 9 Up-Persephone describes her confining life with her overbearing mother, her growing passion for mysterious and charismatic Hades, and a difficult choice that reverberates far beyond her own existence. A romantic, compelling, and sensual coming-of-age story. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

"There's originality and flair in the picture of a world where the gods have both the familiarity and star appeal of glossy media personalities, and Whitman makes Hades and Persephone (Hadephone? Persades?) a glam celebrity couple that everyone will want to read about." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Whitman amplifies both the heady romance and Earth-goddess themes with poetic, sensual descriptions of nature's intoxicating fertility.she skillfully humanizes Persephone with archetypal scenes of mother-daughter tension. Many mortal teens will see themselves in the young goddess, as she realizes her own talents and strength and grows into herself." -- ALA Booklist "Teens will likely relate to Persephone, who cannot stand the thought of spending eternity in the prison she feels her mother has constructed for her, and her transformation from girlish dreaminess to strong, thoughtful woman will resonate with them." -- School Library Journal "Whitman makes Hades and Persephone (Hadephone? Persades?) a glam celebrity couple that everyone will want to read about."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "A steamy coming-of-age novel laced with feminist sensibilities."--ALA Booklist "A terrific story of a girl on the edge of womanhood, caught between a mother who offers no reverence and a boy who offers worship."--Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author "Will satisfy fans of Libba Bray and Stephenie Meyer."--Kirkus Reviews Whitman makes Hades and Persephone (Hadephone?
