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.

If You're Still within the Sound of My Voice
So this is one of the best songs ever. And Glen Campbell has had some great ones. This is the last book in the Secret Language of Girls trilogy. I read the first one a long time ago and the second one since I've been doing the blog. I highly recommend this series, but read them in order. The friendship of Marilyn and Kate has changed as much as the girls have changed individually. This was a very satisfying end to the series, told with the usual wisdom by the talented Frances O'Roark Dowell. My only criticism of Dowell is that she wrote more!
