Raina Telgemeier, the author of the award-winning 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!
