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.

Jeffery Self's A Very Very Bad Thing was a Very Very Great Book. I liked Drag Teen a lot. But this was even better. It was probably because of the church part of it. I admit that at first I didn't want to read it because I feared it would be a lot of Christian bashing- which I completely understand, as I have said before, the "Christian" church hasn't always been kind to the BLT community. And some "Christian" churches, those that choose to follow humans instead of Christ, still aren't. Still, I wasn't really up for it, you know? But no. This was just real and honest and had a broader POV and just was so really, really well done! This was a heartbreaking but really, really excellent book.
