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.

I can never get the LBGTQ thing right.  I always mix up the letters!  And "Q" is kinda new, isn't it? And I hear there are even more letters that people are wanting to put in, so that will confuse me even more!
Tim Federle has written another book about a LBGTQ kid, a G kid, more specifically.   He is the author of the Nate books, which I really enjoyed as well.  But this is way more than a G book.  This is also about loss, the loss of a sibling.  And about an absent father and about Pittsburgh and about friendship and about a lot of things, but not too many things to make it confusing.  This was just a thoroughly good book.  I am sure it would bother David Levithan though, because it is not very anti-fat!  Highly recommended.
