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.

The Fat Kid Ruins Everything Again

Another Day was another chance for David Levithan to rip on fat people.  He was much more discrete about it this time.  In the first Every Day book, which I suppose will be a series now, he was much more direct.
The more I think about it, I think it was worse for him to do it this way...such a creepy way.
A meets Rhiannon and wants to be able to be with her every day.  Rhiannon wants to be with him, too ah but then...then he is in the body of a BIG kid.  A very BIG kid who is just so different from who A says he is inside.
Here is the thing...I weighed 338 lbs on January 1, 2014.  Today I weigh 182.  I am still obese.  But not as obese.  I still have 54 lbs to lose, so maybe that is why I am still so sensitive to it.
Would David Levithan like me now?  Or should I wait until the other 54 lbs are gone.
