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 is Very Hard
to catch up on all of these books that I failed to write about while I was going through my surgery and all of that stuff with my dad. It is even harder to think about different ways to praise Jacqueline Woodson. I Hadn't Meant to Tell You This is the first book, which I read second, about Lena and Marie. This one is told from Marie's POV and I have to say, even though I read them out of order, I loved them both and can't recommend them enough.
