Loved it submitted by Motomori on June 17, 2013, 11:35am This book had so much meaning to it which is why I loved it so much. Some people can relate to it and some people may just love the comedy put into this!!!! This definitely deserves a five star rating!!!!

Coming of Age and School Drama submitted by sdunav on June 18, 2013, 5:51pm This is a fun YA/older middle grade graphic novel about a 7th grade theater geek. Sexuality (being gay or bi) is mentioned, in a casual way - the upshot of Telgemeier's story is that friends and work you love is more important than romance, especially at this age, and that everyone's confused when it comes to figuring it all out.

Awesome submitted by egozon on June 21, 2013, 8:44am This graphic novel really interests me and I recommend it to all the people out there

unrealistic skills submitted by camelsamba on July 7, 2013, 1:52pm I didn't enjoy this nearly as much as Smile (by the same author). Although it's allegedly set in middle school, it seemed a lot more like high school. The sexuality seemed slightly more sophisticated than the middle schoolers I know, but I can overlook that (currently have 7th and 9th graders and a 9yo, so I do have some recent observations to draw on!). Since the romance was a bigger focus than in Smile, that's part of what made it less appealing for my 9yo.

But the skill level relative to the drama production is where I was really shaking my head. I'm supposed to believe an 8th grader can design and make all costumes for a period piece (including boning in corsets??), a 7th grader design all the sets and manage their production? Sorry, but no. Especially not without significant adult help, and we barely even see the teacher sponsor in this. I suppose this is another example of absent adults so the main characters can have the dramatic literary tension, but that ruined it for me. (My drama experience: sister of a costume designer. Even in college she wasn't doing shows on her own!) Because I couldn't think of these characters as tweens, the rest fell flat.

great submitted by ECReader on July 10, 2014, 7:13am this book was super good! i loved the drama and the funness of the book.

AHHHH submitted by leoniemmm on August 15, 2014, 5:10pm this is one of my favorite books
for one, i love Rania, and her artwork is amazing (she also did SMILE and the BABYSITTERS CLUB graphic novels)
also, I'm involved in theater at my school, and while for a middle school their program seems very advanced, my high school does all student productions and its A LOT of work and fun! and always very dramatic haha
plus, callie has so much style and i love her hair and its just a super inspiring and cute book
*****

BEST BOOK EVER submitted by LIO LOVER 12 on June 9, 2015, 7:03pm it's the best book ever you should read it

sooooooooo goodddddddd submitted by SEAL LOVER 12 on June 13, 2015, 3:22pm best book ever it's a must read

This book is okay submitted by cupcakecrazy7 on June 20, 2015, 7:55am It's not the best book ever, but its an okay choice. So, if you plan on requesting it, just beware: It can be pretty boring. I think this book deserves a 2-3 star rating. But, as always, Raina Telgemeier's comic art is amazing!

my 11-year-old loved it submitted by amy on June 29, 2015, 9:15am My 11-year-old theater-loving son devoured this book. From the moment he opened it, he couldn't put it down. He said it rang true on all levels and made him feel part of a bigger community.

nice submitted by yslee on July 8, 2015, 10:33am another one of Raina Telgemeier's awesome graphic novels :)

Good but confusing submitted by BilboJr on July 13, 2015, 12:46pm This book was really good but at times, I had to look back in the book because I didn't get it.

Well done - for older kids though submitted by EllieN-W on August 30, 2015, 11:12pm Our 8 year old loved Sisters and Smile, both buy Telgemeier as well. Drama was well done and interesting, but did not hold her interest as much and had older themes.

great book submitted by srajapaksa on July 9, 2016, 2:50pm This book is good. This is also one of my faves . I also think it deserves a five star rating.

Adore submitted by Justin Shim on July 10, 2016, 11:28am This novel may be one of the best ones ever written. Filled with jokes, friendship, and heartbreaks, all under a high pressure theater scenario. It's very realistic yet at the same time, it's funny and cool. Anyone is able to read this.

Amazing submitted by baidelk on July 23, 2016, 4:27pm I am 7 and I thought the book was awesome. I loved Sisters too.

Drama submitted by Ele Z. on June 18, 2017, 2:52pm I loved It! I wish I was in eights grade

drama submitted by mahmoud123 on July 2, 2017, 1:54pm could be better

Drama by Raina Teljemeier submitted by Lila F. on June 16, 2018, 2:44pm This book is really great for all the middle school theater geeks, like me, that are out there

Drama submitted by Corgo0828 on June 16, 2018, 2:46pm Super amazing book!! Read this a million times

good submitted by i'm a blobfish on June 23, 2018, 5:47pm a really fun and great book. Totally suggest it.

Great submitted by Shahed on June 23, 2018, 11:28pm LOVE THIS BOOK! tho don't recommend for ages so young. But it promotes so many good issues in the world. Well sort of. If you're really looking for those issues, you'll know

11yo Reluctant Reader submitted by corywill86 on June 18, 2019, 4:14pm This, as well as Smile, were big hits for my 11yo reluctant reader.

drama submitted by avgriffith@hc.wash.k12.mi.us on June 20, 2019, 12:31pm I think Drama is a great book!! I think it proves a good point and that the drawings are really good!!
