Staff Pick: Drama by Raina Telgemeier

Drama by Raina Telgemeier
From goodreads.com:

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 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!

Pick it: if you've spent any part of your teen years on stage or behind the scenes - you know the drama is not saved for when the curtain rises! 

Pair with: Smile for Raina Telgemeier's graphic novel braceface goodness or Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan for another story about high school theatre.
