I read this on NetGalley earlier this summer and loved it, so many great things including the fact that it’s about the drama kids who are not on stage. My 12-year-old daughter (and huge fan of SMILE) loved it as well. Her favorite part? “There were all kinds of kids and friends and people. Some girls liked boys, some boys liked girls, and some boys liked boys. That isn’t in books enough.”
One of the things that I love about Raina’s writing is how she captures the complexity of middle school kids, not an easy task! Check out author Raina Telgemeier at her website GoRaina.com and on twitter at @goraina. She is running a fantastic contest to celebrate the release of the book (specifics are here).
Happy (belated) Book Birthday to Drama!
