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.

It's a Miracle
How can you not like Barry Manilow's songs? How? How? Another miracle is the way that Jacqueline Woodson writes. She is just amazing. This was a beautiful story about three brothers who are on their own, following the separate death's of their parents. Miracle's Boys is mostly the story of Lafayette and how is dealing with the loss and also the acting out of his brother Charlie, who has already spent time in juvie for holding up a candy store. They kind of reminded me of the Curtis brothers- Soda, Darry and Ponyboy.
