Book Review: Drama by Raina Telgemeier

Dec 07, 2012

During preparation for her middle school's spring musical, Callie meets new friends and harbours secret crushes. Read Kidzworld's book review of the graphic novel Drama by Raina Telgemeier.

Stage Crew

Callie is obsessed with theater, but she’s not exactly talented when it comes to singing or acting. So she’s found a passion that keeps her closer than close to the stage - set design! For her middle school’s spring production of Moon Over Mississippi, Callie is in charge of set design and she can’t wait to make it the set of a lifetime.

Unrequited Crush

Callie has a crush on Greg, the older brother of her theater friend, Matt. After they share a kiss, Callie thinks things are finally going to go her way with Greg. But he’s still hung up on his bossy ex-girlfriend, Bonnie.

The Twins

When auditions for Moon Over Mississippi begin, Callie meets twin brothers Justin and Jesse who are two polar opposites. Justin is a flamboyant, dramatic and fun guy, who hopes to win the leading role in the musical, while Jesse is more of the quiet type, who steps aside to let his brother shine. When Callie learns that Justin is gay, she inquires about Jesse, only to discover that he’s not. She’s happy, and as Jesse joins the stage crew, she begins pursuing him. But is Callie reading his signals right? Is there a spark or are they destined to just be friends?

The Bottom Line

Drama is another awesome graphic novel by Raina Telgemeier, the author of Smile. It is all about the love of theater, and the modern issues that we face in middle school, like auditions, rejection, multiculturalism, gay friends, and secret crushes. This graphic novel is a great read, and has a surprise twist ending! Kidzworld definitely recommends Drama!

How would you participate in your school's theater club?

  • I'm confident, so I'd be the leading actor or actress!
  • I'm shy, so I'd be an extra. Nothing with actual lines.
  • I'm creative, so I'd be on the stage crew. Set design, costume design, etc.
  • I'm techy, so I'd work on the lights and sound.
