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.

REALLY good!

Middle grade fiction is SO good!  You Go First is SO good!  Erin Entrada Kelly won the Newbery for Hello, Universe which I really liked a lot, but I loved this one more!  Very realistic and heart-felt.  Great characters.  The article in the NY Times is what pointed me to it.  Good article.   I wasn't too excited about HU winning the Newbery.  I think last year there were so many better books, even though it was good.  But I am going to keep reading Kelly's books because this one was even better!
