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.

The Dark Root, the sixth installment of the Joe Gunther series was VERY good and another 5 star. This book dealt with the rise of Asian American gangs and addressed the racial discrimination that went along with it. Again, I feel like Archer was writing ahead of his time when he addresses issues back in the 90s that, sadly are still issues today (see #5) but are now, at least getting better, more appropriate attention.
