Patrick Jones is one of my "heroes in the field." He is an amazingly talented man, with a heart for teens and libraries. Bridge. I wrote about him here, when I read The Tear Collector, which was a terrific book. I was blown away when he posted on my blog, because well, he is Patrick Jones! And he's brilliant and he also seems super kind! And he is just so cool!
When I saw Bridge on netgalley, I just had to request it. Turns out that Bridge is part of a series called The Alternative. I can't wait to read the other. I am going to purchase all of these for the Library! Hooray!
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.
