  1. It might be difficult to tell from the page count, but this is actually a graphic novel I took this with me to the gym today, I ve been going to the gym regularly for the first time in my life to try to correct some injuries instead of succumbing to surgery and I wanted to try to read while exercising So I thought I d bring something easy that didn t require a lot of concentration since they play music in the gym and I normally can t read if I hear music with words, but there was just enough amb [...]

  2. I went into this graphic novel a bit wary, since I had read Telgemeier s Smile and wasn t the biggest fan But with this newest addition I was ecstatic to find that Drama was nothing like I d anticipated.Callie loves theater And while she would totally try out for her middle school s production of Moon Over Mississippi, she can t really sing Instead she s the set designer for the drama department stage crew, and this year she s determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle school budg [...]

  4. Raina Telgemeier does it again She has a knack for telling a serious yet humorous story with colorful, fun artwork I loved her main character Callie she was a very real 7th grade girl I also loved that this book was not about the lead actress in a musical it was about the stage crew though some actors did play a part Raina also does a wonderful job at introducing middle school boys who are questioning their sexuality in an unbiased, nonjudgmental way It is completely appropriate for middle grade [...]

  5. Guest Post by Addie, my 9 year old daughterDRAMA is about girl named Callie who is in a acting class at school She likes a boy who finds out he is gay in acting class Callie loves to read acting books at the library In this book Callie is a set designer and at the end of the she becomes the stage manager.I would recommend this book to my friends because I think they would like it Callie learns about gay people and how she can still be friends with them.My reaction Well, I guess I probably should [...]

  6. Review originally posted on RatherBeReadingBlog I am absolutely giddy in love with Raina Telgemeier s work.Drama is the first graphic novel I ve ever read and while it only took me about an hour to get through it, I couldn t stop going back and smiling over the details in these colorful scenes and how perfectly Raina has been able to capture the middle school experience.And for the theater lovers, finally a book that celebrates those dear people who work on the stage crew, the kookiness that ens [...]

  7. I m not someone who Googles old acquaintances much I tend to leave the past in the past, and I m also a bit of a digital recluse Who am I kidding a bit of a recluse in general By this I mean that I never got much into Facebook and have limited myself to only dabbling in other platforms GR is pretty much the only mechanism I regularly use to virtually interact with others, and I like it because it s focused precisely on the literary aspects of life rather than, you know, All Of Life.Nonetheless I [...]

  8. This book was something that you can really connect to Callie is a normal teen that deals with typical boy drama along with handling a romantic play However, if you want some advice for boy drama, I wouldn t go to her if I were you.

  9. This has consistently been one of the most popular graphic novels for middle graders in every school library I ve worked in It s fun, it s an interesting story, and the art is great Essentially, it s the story of a year 7 kid who s working on the set design for the school play Along the way, she makes new friends, overcomes obstacles in her vision for the play, and struggle buses her way through friendships and crushes I loved the fact that it s a middle grade graphic novel with LGBTQIA represen [...]

  10. The Summer of the Graphic Novel continues at our house I love the bold and playful illustrations in this one some might call the artwork dramatic and Callie is my personal favorite so far of all of Telgemeier s characters.Our son graduated from a high school that has a drama program that you just would NOT believe Every show we have attended has been at off Broadway standards, and several of his peers have gone on to pursue Broadway and or a serious study of music at Berklee, so the portrayal of [...]

  11. I ll be honest the only reason I read this book was that I heard it had a gay character.That s not something I d normally do I have no problems with gay characters in books, but I don t normally go out of my way to look for them What made this book different was that it was a middle grade book, meant for kids as young as second grade I didn t know such a book existed, let alone one published by After I heard about Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant s story with Remnatns, I sort of gave up on [...]

  12. This is my fifth book from Raina Telgemeier, so I m familiar with her style That said, I find this book to be the weakest, less captivating and most dramatic graphic novel she s written illustrated Drama is to be expected After all, the title is literally DRAMA So I did expect it and was able to tolerate it Actually, in many cases, drama can make a story interesting If I m watching Grey s Anatomy, it s not because the medical cases are so darn fun.It s because of the drama But unfortunately, al [...]

  13. Still just as outstanding on a reread Funny, fast read, with great artwork, and a strong message.Raina Telgemeir, whose SMILE was such a fantastic middle grade memoir, returns to the middle school hallways with this graphic novel Callie, a 7th grade theater geek and stage techie, is in charge of set design for her school s spring musical, MOON OVER MISSISSIPPI Callie s comfortable in her role in the crew she learned long ago that her voice would never win her a leading role , and she loves worki [...]

  14. Okay im officially a Raina Telgemeier fan Her stories and characters and illustrations are sooo good and relateable Down to earth and realistic And so cute.

  15. I am currently reading Drama by Raina Telegemeier So far I think the theme of the book is to follow your dreams and never give up I think this because so far in the book the characters have all been doing what they love and is their dream like, if they wanted to be quarter back on the football team then the character would go to football tryouts and if they wanted to play violin they would audition for orchestra One example from the book is right when sign ups are posted for the school play some [...]

  16. Fun behind the scenes look at being a backstage drama nerd in junior high although this felt like high school to me Callie is a very appealing young woman with a passion for set design I love that she is concerned about getting the prop cannon to work than she is about finding a boyfriend, although she does have a crush.Just the right amount of twists, a dash of teenage embarrassment, and lots of humor Especially recommended for theater kids.

  17. LOVE Cannot say this enough, and a longer, pithy review will be coming soon, but I want to see this one in EVERY SINGLE LIBRARY Multiple copies Elementary, middle, high school, public, I want it there And Rainbow Committee, COLAGE, Our Family Coalition, GSA Network, GLSEN, I want this on every book list, you d be idiots not to Every so often I just want to gush thanks and praise at an author, and I am totally there with this one right now.

  18. Drama is another Graphic Novel I ve loved You can t even imagine what Callie Main Character was going threw Callie loves theater She always has But when her school decided to put on the play Moon Over Mississippi they have many singing parts Callie is not great at singing, so she doesn t think she will make the part she wanted Instead of taking part in the play, she decided to be the set designer Callie also has a budget to work around She is determined to make the best set under budget But with [...]

  19. As a huge fan of SMILE and Raina Telgemeier, I was excited to read DRAMA and thankful that I was able to pick up an ARC at ALA I was also thrilled to meet both Raina and her husband Dave at ALA And I think it was Raina who said that DRAMA is a little like GLEE for Middle School I think that is an apt comparison Raina s humor and ability to celebrate the day to day stuff in the lives of tweens to young teens is remarkable DRAMA focuses on the behind the scenes folks of the Drama club rather than [...]

  20. This book had romantic twists than an episode of My So Called Life Being the drama kid that I was, I wish this had been centered on the middle school stage production It also felt rushed and 2 D, which is how I felt about Stitches Oh well, I m still a Telgemeir fan.

  21. Honestly wanted to give this book three stars, but when I saw all the concern trolling reviews, I gave it four Many little kids have parents cousins aunts uncles grandparents family friends whatever in same gender relationships Drama is by NO MEANS an inappropriate read for any elementary school kid If you think so, then you best be banning books depicting opposite gender romances My nine year old niece read this after we both read Smile and she loved it but warned me that Some people think it s [...]

  22. Raina Telgemeier describes middle school life in ways that make me realize how much it s changed since I taught that age over 2 decades ago Even my son s middle school didn t have these kinds of drama productions, but what fun it is to see these kids do it Telgemeier is very popular among pre teens and her graphic novels explore profound topics in a straightforward way In this book Callie is struggling with one crush, then another She becomes friends with twin brothers Justin and Jesse Justin co [...]

  23. Drama is one of my favorite books because it shows that being gay is ok Also that you don t need to keep it a secret from all of your friends If one of your friends are feeling down ask them what s wrong This book shows that things change between friends Being gay isn t bad it s not wrong to like the Same sex Same sex is ok some people like the same sex some don t.

  24. Cute, and funny I was on stage crew at my school for years, and I totally wish we got to do all the cool things inDrama A few things were kind of unrealistic ex in middle school they usually don t show characters kissing on stage but I still liked it.

  25. Amazing This is unusual for me to read a book in one day It very often where I finished a book in a day This book is really good.

  26. Looking back over my shoulder I can see that look in your eyeTurning my heart over and over I never wanted to say goodbye Raina Telgemeier s Drama has been reaping a handy collection of end of the year awards, both physical I presume and abstract crafted of the finest internet points Publishers Weekly, Washington Post, New York Times Booklist, NPR, School Library Journal They all loved it In the realm of young adult graphic lit, it s been a good year for Drama Which made me feel strange about my [...]

  27. Normally I don t like graphic novels too much, but this book was so good I expected it to be really cliche honestly, but it really wasn t The art was super good, and I fully understood the plot I loved the characters well except for two, but you weren t supposed to like them anyway , and they were so well written I really enjoyed this book overall
