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.

Jack Gantos, I Could Marry I Guy Like That!
Not that Jack Gantos would want to marry me! But I love this man's sense of humor and his heart. In 2012 he won the Newbery for Dead End in Norvelt. He follows up this year with a wonderful sequel, From Norvelt to Nowhere. This book continues that antics of Gantos boy and Mrs. Volker as they chase Spizz and honor the recently deceased founder of Norvelt, Eleanor Roosevelt.
