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.

Pass the Soto, please
Except, Soto kinda sounds like soda, but not really.
And we here in my corner of the world say "pop" anyway.
And also, I really like Gary Soto's books and so I am always happy to read another.
Off and Running was another one from a girl's POV.
This one is about two kids competing for class president.
It's kind a like an Andrew Clements book in that it just pops you back into middle school/upper early elementary so I just think that is a gift.
