Drama by Raina Telgemeier (2012)
Callie is in 7th grade, and she just loves musicals and the theater. However, she learned young that she really could not carry a tune, so therefore, she really couldn’t perform in a musical. She has found her place though and is the set designer for her middle school’s latest musical production. Meanwhile, she is having crushes on various 8th graders, and suddenly life seems crazy.
I read Telgemeier’s Smile a couple of years ago, and I am surprised that I didn’t read this one until now. I personally enjoyed it very much. In another year or two, I may consider recommending it to my nine year old niece.
