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.

Last week a kid made fun of me because I was, what he called, "skinny!"  I wanted to tell him that David Levithan would be VERY mad at him for doing that!  Skinnybones was a good book.  Just a good story about being a kid and trying to fit in and not being as "big" or as "bad" or as "cool" as the others.  A good school story.  This is written by the late Barbara Park who also wrote the Junie B. Jones books, of which I am NOT a fan, as I think she is mean!  But I am very sensitive!  Well this wasn't a mean book, I mean, it dealt with bullying, but the main character is a good dude.
