This review of Raina Telgemeier’s DRAMA is by Mariah, age 7.
This book came in my dad’s mail and on the first day he got it I was all over it. I read it all the first day and then a little after I was finished it I read again. I even brought it to the dentist to read in the waiting room. Dad didn’t even get to read it. I am reading it again now. I am at page 95 (it has 233 pages).
In DRAMA Callie wants to be in the school play, but she can’t because she is not a very good singer. Instead she joins the stage crew and makes sets. There is also trouble with some boys she likes.
I wanted to take a look at it when dad first got it because the title and the cover looked very interesting. The coloured in pages of the book made me think it was an interesting book. Then the colour stopped and turned to black, grey and white, but that made me think it was even more interesting. I thought it was going to be a colour, no-colour, colour, no-colour book, but dad says that the colour stopped because we have a review copy, not a store copy. You can get the full-colour book in September 2012.

I think this book would be good for kids aged 10 and up, but I’m only 7. There is a little kissing and some boyfriend stuff. The prom part is not too bad, but with the kissing, I’m not too sure.
Dad says that the publisher, Scholastic, recommends the book for ages 10-14 or grades 5-9. I think adults might want to look at it too.
