Reviews

 The author follows up her award-winning graphic novel Smile with another dead-on look at the confusing world of middle school, sweetly capturing all the drama swirling around the school production. . . . Should be eagerly devoured by her many fans.
–Publishers Weekly, starred review

 With the clear, stylish art, the strongly appealing characters and just the right pinch of drama, this book will undoubtedly make readers stand up and cheer. Brava!
–Kirkus, starred review

 In this realistic and sympathetic story, feelings and thoughts leap off the page, revealing Telgemeier’s keen eye for young teen life.
–Booklist, starred review

 An entertaining and enlightening read.
–School Library Journal, starred review

Telgemeier draws up-by-their-book-bags characters who value hard work and seize a chance that has nothing to do with looks or even with love. . . . The better Telgemeier’s books sell, the less hand-wringing to do over the next generation. If this is what the youth of America are into, the kids are all right.
New York Times Book Review

Hilarious. . . . Telgemeier’s graphic artist skills make this novel a pleasure to read and re-read.
–Horn Book

Raina Telgemeier delivers a star turn with her graphic novel follow-up to Smile, with this tale of Callie and her middle-grade drama (double entendre intended). Encore!
–Shelf Awareness
