We’ll be discussing Raina Telgemeier’s Drama, which is suitable for readers young and old! Here are some reviews, taken from Raina’s website:
★ 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.
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!
