From Raina Telgemeier, the #1 New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of Smile and Sisters!

Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school's production of Moon over Mississippi, she can't really sing. Instead she's the set designer for the drama department's stage crew, and this year she's determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn't know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen. And when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier!

          This book is about a girl named Callie she has a crush on her friend and he just broke up with his girlfriend. They went to the park to talk and ended up kissing. In the drama club, everyone was talking about who Callie kissed. Callie signed up to do the set and designing for their play. It turns out the guy Callie kissed was ashamed or embarrassed about her when his old girlfriend wanted him back. Everyone on the team is helping design the audition flyer and the props. She eventually ends up trying out for a part. Callie does not get the part at first, but when she is doing stuff for crew falls in love, then does have to act.

            Drama by Raina Tegemeier is about a girl named Cassie who loves theater! The show at her school is Moon Over the Mississippi, and Cassie would totally audition, but she doesn't really sing. Instead, she gets the job of set designer for the theater department's stage crew, which is a great job, but Cassie is supposed to make a Broadway worthy set with a very small budget! How will she, when she doesn't know much about carpentry, not many tickets for the show have sold, and the actors aren't working very well together? Not to mention she has to deal with the onstage AND offstage drama, and when Cassie falls in love with on of the actors, things get even more crazy!

              I really liked this book. It is about a girl named Callie, who is one of the crews of the dramas that the school does, and she enjoys it, and the book is even drama itself!

                Great book but I don't get it that much, but I would recommand this book unless you are homophobic then don't read it because you obviously don't like gays. It's a type of book mixed with romance and comedy.

                    This book is a graphic novel. The main character Callie is in stage crew at her high school. For her school's musical this year they're doing a musical called "Moon Over Mississippi." While she's putting up flyers to audition for the musical, she meets 2 twins named Jesse and Justin. Jesse joins stage crew with her, while Justin performs in the musical. I won't spoil anything else, but the book is about friendship and crushes.

                      It is a good book for people that would like "romance" and comedy. I think that it was really good because I have seen this kind of stuff happen and reading it makes it pretty funny.
