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.

The Third One!
My Life as a Cartoonist is the latest in the My Life as a...series by Janet Tashjian and her son Jake. Again I can't say enough that this series isn't a cheap rip-off of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. In this one Derek and Matt meet Umberto, a transfer student who starts right in bullying Derek. It's funny and real and Derek and his friends are totally likable and lovable! Great series.
