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.

How do you respond to that?
I remember a business trip I took many years ago. We had less than zero budget, so there were six of us, all very different folks, in a minivan, driving across the state. We had a really fun time and got some good work done. But we did have a very awkward moment when someone suggested we play the game Two Truths and a Lie. We were all grown women. A few of us closing in on 35 and the others headed to, and past 50, so it was all sort of goofy and light-hearted.
Some of the truths and lies were, "I've gone white-water rafting. I've been rock climbing. I shot a gun in an orange grove." And "I have three tattoos. I used to raise show dogs. My middle name is Eunice."
We were all laughing and joking. But then we got to one lady who said, "I was raped. I had a miscarriage on my birthday. I were a bra since 44DD."
We were silent. As they say, you could have heard that pin drop. There was a lot of fidgeting and coughing, and then one lady shouted, "I have to stop for the bathroom!" And that ended the game.
So that's one way to end a game of Two Truths and a Lie!
TT and a L is the third book in the Lying Game series. I blew through this baby in a few hours, and I am sad and yet happy that it isn't the end. I REALLY wanted to find out who killed Emma's twin sister, Sutton. I have my suspicion, and I hope I am right, because I really don't like this particular character at all!
