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.

Peace, Locomotion, is another wonderful book. It is the sequel to Locomotion, which I listened to on a trip last year and loved. It continues the story of Lonnie who is still in foster care and still missing his dead parents and his sister, who is in a different foster home. It also speaks volumes about the importance of the right kind of teacher. And is a reminder that we need really great teachers, not just good ones, and certainly not ones like one Lonnie has to deal with in this book.
