About this deal

Along the way, she makes new friends, overcomes obstacles in her vision for the play, and struggle buses her way through friendships and crushes. The color schemes and palettes in Drama were vibrant, spellbinding, and incredibly fitting to the ongoing theme. Nonetheless: I did recently, and really out of nowhere, compulsively Google an old friend/acquaintance from high school, someone who'd been a grade ahead of me and whom I knew from having done the annual Shakespeare play together for three autumns at the small suburban Detroit Catholic high school we attended. But other than that, the artwork was really good; it was bright and fun to look at, and it was very evocative of real motion and real life.

Following the success of SMILE, Raina Telgemeier brings us another graphic novel featuring a diverse set of characters that humorously explores friendship, crushes, and all-around drama! Every show we have attended has been at "off Broadway" standards, and several of his peers have gone on to pursue Broadway and/or a serious study of music at Berklee, so the portrayal of the "drama scene" at this school felt completely authentic to me. His kindness is corroborated by many independent online voices of those who knew him throughout time and place. For fifty years, she has trained to slay wyrms - but none have appeared since the Nameless One, and the younger generation. Raina Telgemeier, the author of the award-winning SMILE, brings us her next full-colour graphic novel .The graphic novel itself combines both manga and comic forms, which the author frequently read while growing up. GR is pretty much the only mechanism I regularly use to virtually interact with others, and I like it because it's focused precisely on the literary aspects of life rather than, you know, All Of Life. She then told me that she doesn't have any gay kids in her class at school, so I had to explain that they may not know it yet or not want to share. If gay people bother you and you don't want your kids to read about them, don't give them this book.

My daughter has read the Babysitter Club books by Raina Telgemeier and Smile and I’ve flipped through them and thought they were fine for a 4th Grader. Tell me, oh people who gave this 1 star because two boys kissed and one wore a dress to save the show because the lead girl was having hysterics and the understudy was nowhere to be found, tell me, if this story was about a boy and a GIRL would you say it shouldn't be on library shelves where kids could see a picture of them kissing? Both Publishers Weekly [24] and the Washington Post [25] list Drama as one of the Best Books of 2012. Every so often I just want to gush thanks and praise at an author, and I am totally there with this one right now. I went into this graphic novel a bit wary, since I had read Telgemeier's Smile and wasn't the biggest fan.Booklist Review claimed that "Telgemeier is prodigiously talented at telling cheerful stories with realistic portrayals of middle-school characters. However, the details regarding the Chapel Hill Elementary School ban are limited since "there has been no news coverage. The article by Abate suggests that, in attempting to make her novel more inclusive, Telgemeier inadvertently fits her characters into stereotypes.
