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.

Life is Complicated
Just Under the Clouds is one of those books that reminds me that life is not easy. This is a very real book in that Cora doesn't just have one complication in her life, she has many. Like we all do. As if being a middle schooler isn't hard enough when one's family is stable and intact, Cora is dealing with the death of her father, her family's homelessness, her mom's issues and her sister's exceptional abilities. Each one of these topics is handled so beautifully and so well. This was an amazing book. It is Melissa Sarno's first and I can't wait until her next.
