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.

My Favorite Star
That has nothing to do with The Sun is Also a Star. I can't remember why this title fits. I mean, I can't figure out the reason for the title. The fact is mentioned in the book. Natasha is fond of "provable facts" and really doesn't want to have faith or trust in anything that is not a "provable fact." Whereas Daniel believes dreams are important, that passion is important, that feelings are important.
And girl meets boy and they fall in love.
But the book is more than just boy meets girl and they fall in love. It is really beautiful. It is really moving. It is really well written. This is my favorite for the Printz this year. Will it win? Probably not, but I would like it to win!
