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.

Petula is one for sure! I can't say I blame her. Optimists Die First was a really good story. There are a lot of books with similar subjects, nothing new under the sun, right? But this was a really good book and most certainly have that feeling of "why bother to write a book about this when it has already been done better?" It's first love, and parents and fear and friendship and all of that, rolled into loss of a loved one and guilt.
