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.

I was totally creeped out by another Mary Downing Hahn book! Wait Till Helen Comes is a great ghost story and the ghost is an evil child. There is nothing scarier than an evil child. I think back to the time I was chased mercilessly through Freddy's Haunts by a child with a chainsaw. And then there was the pretty tasteless but truly frightening room at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum full of children. I still have nightmares. This book was published in 1987 but it isn't dated at all and all of Hahn's books are worth reading and wonderful!
