As a former Thespian(super drama nerd) I was set up to fall in love withthis graphic novel right from the start. Lucky for me, Raina Telgemeierreally nails the drama of, well, drama class. She even covers that awkwardmoment when a boy is seemingly flirting with you, only to discover he hasthe hots for one of your guy friends. Passing notes (check yes, no, ormaybe)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).

Description


From Raina Telgemeier, the #1 "New York Times" bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of "Smile" and "Sisters"
Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school's production of "Moon over Mississippi," she can't really sing. Instead she's the set designer for the drama department's 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
