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.

Five, Six, Seven Nate is a clever title, the second in the story of Nate, a tween we first met in Better Nate Than Ever. Tim Federle is rising star on Broadway and so all of the ins and outs of putting together a Broadway musical are here. I don't know much about the business, but if this is what it is like, it is crazy and tedious and frustrating and wonderful all at the same time. I gave this one four of five just because I got a little bogged down with the insider stuff, but that was more of a reflection of me than of the book. If you have always wanted to be on the stage, you won't mind it at all. This is a great, great book.
