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.

While I Didn't Hate It...
Iggie's House was that great. As you can see from my Judy Blume reviews, she really isn't a big hero of mine, but I have enjoyed some of her books very much. This one is similar to AYTGIMM in that none of the characters are likable at all, really. It's the story of a girl who sees the evils of racism first-hand when an African American family moves into her previously all-white neighborhood. It is just okay.
