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.

Amazing...but what a shame!

As I said in the review of You Don't Even Know Me, Sharon G. Flake's short stories are disappointing.  Each one grabs you and won't let go.  Her characters are so real she makes them care SO much about them, that it just isn't fair that we can't read more about them!
Who am I Without Him? is painful, beautiful, fresh, honest, pure Sharon G. Flake.  I saw myself in some of these stories.  I saw my friends, my mom, my grandmother.  Boys and girls should read both You Don't and Who Am I.  It might make for better and stronger relationships.  If not, it will certainly make for a little more understanding between the sexes.
