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.

Non-Preachy Way to Share a Message
Upside Down Magic series has some wonderful messages. Acceptance, diversity, radical hospitality are just a few. And all of these messages are subtle and packed into a these funny, magical books. This is a great addition to the series. Even as the UDM class gets better at controlling their "wonkiness" they are learning that their "wonkiness" isn't a bad thing at all. Great series. Showing Off really handled the dad issue in a very realistic way, I thought. And I was so thankful for that. Just really, really good. Plus I LOVE the dritten covers!!!!!!!!
