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.

One Mixed-Up Night is a book that at first I thought was a fluffy kinda fun story about two kids spending the night in IKEA. Which I think would be great fun! And I totally love the way that the kids love IKEA because their reasons are my reasons for loving IKEA. It also reminds me of the times in my childhood when my brother and I were able to stay all night at Children's Palace, where my dad was a manager who worked so hard, all of the time and would often spend Sundays (when the store wasn't open-- back in the day!) and nights at work just cleaning up. But it is also a great look at friendship and loss as well. Good book.
