Author: Raina Telgemeier
This is my 77th read for the year
This is a story about Callie. She loves theater, and is excited to be a part of the set design for this year's school production. Drama between the crew and the on stage performers quickly develops. And among that, Callie has her own turmoil with a boy (or a few) that she has a crush on. Finding her way and trying to figure out what she wants while pulling off a terrific set for their play brings out plenty of Drama for Callie and her friends.
This is the last Telgemeier graphic novel that my daughter and I have. We have enjoyed reading all 4 of them, and this was one was no different. A nice message about finding your way in middle school, and figuring out who your friends are. Plus learning tolerance of others, even if they feel differently than you. We read this one in an afternoon and really enjoyed it. Highly recommend.
