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.

G word is never used in Harlem Charade, and the larger worry is a proposed amusement park in Harlem, this book gets to the heart of what gentrification can do to a community. Natasha Tarpley is an author that I really want to explore! I loved the characters and I loved the family dynamics and I loved the writing and the message. Good stuff!
