“Drama” Raina Telgemeier

ARC (Advance Reading Copy). To be published September 1, 2012. Graphix (Scholastic Inc.) 233 pp.

In this graphic novel, 7th grader Callie tells of her love for theater and set design. When her middle school prepares to put on a production of “Moon over Mississippi” she is thrilled at the chance to design the set. While working on the production, she is mixed up in various love dramas and triangles, while trying to figure out her own amorous feelings for someone who doesn’t even know she exists.

“Drama” is a good read for students aged 9-12, especially those interested in theater. Its graphic novel format will also encourage reluctant readers to give it a go.

As a School Librarian, I was Co-Chair of REFORMA's (The National Association to Promote Library Services to the Latinos and Spanish Speaking) CAYASC (Children & Young Adult Services Committee) for 2 yrs. As Co-Chair, I was in charge of all things YA. I have been a member of YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) for many years, and have worked as a school librarian for many years. When I'm not blogging, I like to read, run, race and sing - not necessarily in that order. My blog reviews books I enjoyed (or didn't enjoy), which leaves you to ask yourself "Should I Read it or Not?"
