Checked is not a sports book. I mean I didn't really think it would be, just because I don't think of Cynthia Kadohata is a "sports fiction" author, but she is such a great author that she can write anything she wants and you just KNOW she will do it well!
This story just got so down deep, you know? I don't know how to say it another way.
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.
