Drama Raina Telgemeier
Callie loves theater. She can't act or sing, but she's awesome at the tech stuff. So she's very excited to be the set designer for the school's production of Moon of Mississippi. She's finally kissed the guy she likes, but now he's not talking to her. She has two new guy friends (one an actor, one she talks into tech) who may be possibilities, but maybe not. Her best friend is doing costumes and the show could be awesome but...
Callie doesn't have the budget for the set she's designed, her cannon isn't working, and no one's buy tickets. What's a girl to do?
I think Telgemeier could make a comic book out of the phone book and I'd love it. I love how she captures drama department politics without going too prima donna diva-overboard. I love Callie's determination to make that cannon work. I also love the relationship with her friend Liz and her little brother.
While this isn't straight up biographical like Smile, the little details about junior high life that made that one so perfect are here in Drama.
