Diary of a Wimpy Kid retread. I don't know if anyone but me has ever thought that, but when I first saw one of the books for the first time I thought it was just going to be one. But from the very first one, which was actually the second one, I was hooked. My Life as a Joke is just as good as that one and Derek Fallon is just as awesome. And I can't wait for the next one.
The thing about My Life as...as I have said before, is that they have a serious side and take on real-life issues.
Great, great books from a very talented mother and son.
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.
