By Raina Telgemeier
Genre Middle Grade Graphic Novel
Callie loves the theater and is working on the new set design for her school's latest production, Moon Over Mississippi. Crushes, heartbreak and drama ensue.
"Do you think Mr. Madera will let me operate the spotlight again?"
For someone who isn't a big graphic novel fan, I love Telgemeier's books. They're so relatable and I'm not even the intended audience!
When I was young I acted in a few plays and, boy oh boy, did I have some serious crushes. I could totally relate to this one. It's my new favorite of hers.
As usual the art was wonderful and I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting, not that that's hard, but still.
Very fun story. I'd highly recommend Telgemeier for anyone trying to get into graphic novels.
