Teen review: Graphic novel

by Raina Telgemeier
233 pages
Stand-alone graphic novel
Suggested for 6th grade up

Reviewed by Kayla, grade 10
Callie is different from everyone else. With her purple hair and various ear piercings she sticks out in a crowd for sure, but she loves theater. Her school is doing the play Moon Over Mississippi, which has been her favorite play since she was little. However, she has no singing talent. So she decides to design the set for the stage crew and she has a bunch of crazy but good ideas. She encounters many adventures and people along the way too, which make her have an even better time.

This book was cool to read because I think that anyone could relate to these kids. The story is also told through comic strips, so the color pops right out at the reader. Callie is a really cool character and she tells her story with such ease. I would definitely recommend this book to others because I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I rate this book as a 5.
