book thoughts: DRAMA by Raina Telgemeier (2012)

DramaDrama by Raina Telgemeier

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What I love about Telgemeier’s SMILE and DRAMA is that they are stories about a girl – not a girl and a boy (though boys are involved, since we do tend to cross paths with them as we grow up) but a girl, living her life.  And, in the end, she learns something about herself.  They are about friendship; they are about growing up.

 

DRAMA is the story of Callie going through a production with her school’s drama club as they mount an ambitious musical.  She recruits two new members for the club, making friends with two new students, all the while navigating the ins-and-outs with her old friends and classmates. 

 

If you liked SMILE, I think you will enjoy DRAMA.  The story skews slightly older than SMILE, in my opinion, but it still ends with a very positive message for the reader.
