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.

A Little Bird Told Me
Bird is a short and sweet slice-of-life novel from the wonderful Angela Johnson. Bird is thirteen and runs away from home when her step-father leaves her and her mother. She hopes to find him and convince him to come back to them. Along the way she meets two boys who are tired together but don't know each other. A great little book from a great author.
