Description of this Book

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!

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Short-listed for Virginia Readers Choice Award (Middle School) 2015
NZ Review Praise for SMILE <p><br> An utterly charming graphic memoir of tooth trauma, first crushes and fickle friends, sweetly reminiscent of Judy Blume's work. . . . Irresistible, funny and touching-a must read for all teenage girls. --KIRKUS REVIEWS <p><br> A charming addition to the body of young adult literature that focuses on the trials and tribulations of the slightly nerdy girl. --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY <p><br> It hits home partly because there is nothing else out there like it. --THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
