Telgemeier, Raina. Drama. Graphix, 2012.

Callie loves theater. She's the set designer for the drama department 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 graphic novel was adorable.  It was just really cute.  The panels were easy to follow, I enjoyed the story, and the illustrations were colorful and not overdone.  This was a really quick read, and if I still had a classroom bookshelf, this book would be on it.

I have a small selection of graphic novels, but sometimes the readers drive me a little crazy-- they'll check out the same books over and over, and return them so quickly that I wonder if they have done more than look at the pictures. Of course, the same can be said of the readers of the Warriors series. At least they have books in their hands and are turning pages?!
