Drama - A Graphic Novel of Middle School Drama On and Off Stage... And Gay Characters, too!

Drama by Raina Telgemeier

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's 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 drama that occurs once the actors are chosen.  And when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier!

With both gay and hetero middle school crushes, coming out moments and characters pursuing their passions in the world of theater, I loved this graphic novel.   Add your review of "Drama" in comments!
