Staff Reviews

As a former Thespian(super drama nerd) I was set up to fall in love with
this graphic novel right from the start. Lucky for me, Raina Telgemeier
really nails the drama of, well, drama class. She even covers that awkward
moment when a boy is seemingly flirting with you, only to discover he has
the hots for one of your guy friends. Passing notes (check yes, no, or
maybe)prom, and discovering your value is just as high offstage as on.
Teens will relate and adults will wax nostalgic(c'mon ladies, don't lie).

Raina Telgemeier, the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the Eisner Award winner, SMILE, brings us her next full-color graphic novel . . . DRAMA!

Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school's production of Moon Over Mississippi, she's a terrible singer. Instead she's the set designer for the stage crew, and this year she's determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn't know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen, and when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier! Following the success of SMILE, Raina Telgemeier brings us another graphic novel featuring a diverse set of characters that humorously explores friendship, crushes, and all-around drama!

"A charming addition to the body of young adult literature that focuses on the trials and tribulations of the slightly nerdy girl." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"It hits home partly because there is nothing else out there like it." --THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
