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.

Eleven Birthdays, but it was loved by so many and this one was available for e audio checkout. I really liked Finally a lot. I didn't know that the Willow Falls series focused on a different member of the WillowFalls community in each book. The kids from the first book are in this one, but Finally is told from the POV of Rory, who is a quiet, in-the-background kinda gal, and has just turned twelve. She is super excited because now she can get a cellphone and hopefully her usually over- protective mom will give her a little more space. It is full of great humor and an understanding of what it is like to be twelve. Good stuff. This one didn't have supernatural element, like 11 Birthdays did, at least I don't think so. Looking forward to reading the next one!
