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.

Was it Just
My Life Before Me only 3 of 5 stars. I really didn't like Cady. All of the girls had the same problem, but Cady just was a jerk. In my opinion. She was very realistic! Her journey took her to the United States, to the state of Indiana, where racism is rampant, just like in the south. I can't tell if Cady is as miserable and uncaring about her birth parents as she seems to be or if it is a defense mechanism. Either way, this was my least favorite one, but still glad I read it.
