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.

Queens and Kings
great song by NAS. I was reminded of this song all the way through The Broken Bike Boy and the Queen of 33rd Street. This is another great offering from Sharon G. Flake, who really knows what it is like to be a kid and to right so real that you forget that Queen and Broken Bike Boy are ficticious characters. Queen isn't very likable, but you understand her. Great story on how to be a friend and have a friend. How to be yourself but not be too full of yourself. And to remember always, that you, indeed, royal and precious.
