Shug and Mark are best friends and have been since they were little, but seventh grade has changed everything. Shug's home life is tough, with her Daddy at work all the time and her Mama drinking, and school is very confusing, everyone pairing off with boys. Heart-breaking, but hopeful and real. This is my fourth book from Jenny Han and she can't write 'em fast enough! I can't wait for Burn for Burn!
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.

This book is NOT about Suge Knight
Shug to me over the years and I am glad that I finally read it, because it is a truly great book even though it is painful. Aren't all books about middle school painful? Middle school can be terribly painful!
