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 Nations Will Be Judged
Nowhere Boy is something else. What a book. What a really accessible book. It's set in 2015-2016 and tells the story of a young refugee from Syria. Set in Belgium, the other main character is an American boy whose parents have moved him to Belgium because of his father's job. Very real and well drawn characters. One of the best books I have read.
