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.

Wanda Coven...is that her real name?
Heidi Heckelbeck is a nice kid. She is. She isn't a future PTS or someone who would do well with Ivy and Bean. She just isn't too exciting! I mean, yes she is a witch- the magical spell kind, like Miri and Rachel. Heidi is going to school for the first time, she has been homeschooled for K and first grade. So there is a big adjustment for her. She faces a bully and in the second book she retaliates by casting a spell upon her bully. I thought that it was done decently well. I can see kids really liking this series, so I will recommend it. I've only read Hedi Heckelbeck has a Secret and Heidi Heckelbeck Casts a Spell, but I wasn't drawn to continuing on like with Keena or Dyamonde. Still, these were decent!
