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.

A Sequel that Didn't Disappoint!
The Wind in the Door was even more amazing than A Wrinkle in Time. And I thought that P.S. Be Eleven was just as amazing as One Crazy Summer! But with movies, the sequel is usually a disappointment, especially with the ones that named as the original with "2" stuck on the end. Now Playing: Stoner and Spaz 2 has that title because movies play such a major part in the story, but this is definitely not just a "2." It's one of those second books that picks up right where the first one left off, and I had read Stoner and Spaz very recently, but I think that the story is so memorable, that even if you hadn't read them back to back, you would remember. Trust me, once you read the first S and S, you will want to go immediately to this one and you will not regret it. Great stuff.
