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.

Not just another Katrina story
Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere came out in the same year as Zane and the Hurricane. Both are about Hurricane Katrina and both are exceptional. Again, it has been a very, very good year for middle grade books, IMHO.
