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!

    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.

                      I really liked this book. It was real drama. It was about friends and also friendship. This made me happy when I read this book, because that it was about friends, so I was glad that CALLIE (Oh the caps was on) had made new and good friends.
