For example, Abate points out that West Redding, who bears a striking resemblance to Ashley Wilkes from the movie Gone with the Wind, is the only character in the book whose eye color is depicted. The tons of laugh-out-loud moments, plus the cast of characters being a bunch of loving and dedicated kids kept me satisfied from start to finish. However, it’s more the general ebb and flow of the pace and issues that make this better suited to teenage readers. I tried my best to explain this matter in an age appropriate manner, but, in the end, she declared she didn't know why girls OR boys would want to date a bunch of stinky boys anyway. This has consistently been one of the most popular graphic novels for middle graders in every school library I've worked in.

There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors.Drama has almost consistently received a spot on the American Library Association's Top Ten 10 of Banned Books from 2014 to 2019, [16] and ultimately became the seventh-most banned book between 2010 and 2019.

On a totally separate note, Drama had a number of enjoyable moments that left me grinning from ear to ear.According to The Gazette: "Telgemeier does a wonderful job of being able to convey a theme usually meant for young adult readers, making it more accessible to the middle school audience the novel was written for.

The characters in this comic seemed a lot more mature to me than the ones in Smile, so I was surprised to find that they were mostly just 7th and 8th graders. Telgemeier draws up-by-their-book-bags characters who value hard work and seize a chance that has nothing to do with looks or even with love.

For example, Abate contends that the title of the school play, Moon Over Mississippi, which serves as a backdrop for the events in the novel, represents a whitewashing and idealization of Southern plantation life, and ignores the realities of life during that era, including slavery. The Harvey Award is one of the most prestigious and oldest accomplishments within the comic industry. By this I mean that I never got much into Facebook and have limited myself to only dabbling in other platforms. For readers who identify as LGBTQ, Berland argues that Telgemeier's positive depiction of LGBTQ characters in Drama serves to validate their experiences, and make them feel more included in modern literature. She also believes that "sexuality is a part of your identity that doesn't necessarily apply to what you are doing with other people when you are eight or nine years old," and that she doesn't attempt to force her viewpoints on anyone.

In this realistic and sympathetic story, feelings and thoughts leap off the page, revealing Telgemeier’s keen eye for young teen life. The twin brothers, Jesse and Justin, resemble two of Telgemeier's actual friends, and their in-book personalities mirror their real-life personalities. The first two nights of the musical are a success, but the third night is marred after West breaks up with Bonnie just before the final performance. It also shows the different personalities of different characters which aren't that likeable, the mean and the desperate ones who would go on hurting other people to gain things for themselves.Well, he was in that he was into theater, but he wasn't at all girly or perverted or anything like that. In 2014, a ban in Chapel Hill Elementary School in Mount Pleasant, Texas, put Drama on the American Library Association list of top 10 banned books.
