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!

This will be a really quick review of Drama, since I don’t have that much to say about it. Why? Simply because this was a graphic novel, and honestly, I don’t usually read graphic novel. So I can’t really say much on the drawing, except I thought they were great, and that it was fun to follow, since I wasn’t aware that it was a graphic novel.

That’s the thing with this book. It’s cute, it’s fun, it’s short, and it’s a really fast read. For those that enjoy those cute graphic novels. Yet, it wouldn’t really be something I would reread, or that I would thing is a book everyone needs to read. What I think is that for some young girl that is looking for a great graphic novel to read in her free time, this will work perfectly for her.

The story is short, but it stands on its own well. I overall liked it, and would recommend it if you’re looking for this kind of book.

Well, I did say it would be short!
