Recommends it for: People who enjoy a quick read about a school play
Recommended to Aafia by: I saw it in the library
I usually like the Candy Apple books, even though they're typically extremely predictable and don't always have the best writing (with the exception of the 'Accidentally' series by Lisa Papademetriou), but Drama Queen reaches new depths of predictability and not-so-great writing. It has been a few days since I've read it, and I've read many books since then, so I am a bit fuzzy on the details.

I noticed one typo, which isn't a huge issue, but I felt that the writing style itself overly dramatize

This book is about a girl sort of shy girl called Charlie who loves to act. When she is chosen to act in the school musical, it's not all cherries and ice-cream when the musical it-girl is acting all protective over her 'turf'. But Charlie's talent will safe the day...and might get her some notice from Kyle, the cute boy who's also acting at the play...

Not mind-blowingly amazing but never once did I *sigh* "I don't want to finish this". Charlie, the main character is awesomely realistic going through quite realistic situations and feelings, and of course it's always nice to read a book that you can relate to on some level.

amber is a horrible nasty bully. Charlie us a great protagonist because she is accessible and relatable. the story is predictable, but it is cute and teaches good values. Charlie never behaves poorly to amber no matter how poorly amber treats her.

I like this book. I wonder what it would be like to be in a musical.

Charlie and Nicole are best friends and do practically everything together, including trying out for the school musical.

The only things in their way are Amber Wiley and her little sister, Olivia. Oh, and Nelson, Olivia's imaginary friend!

When Charlie and Nicole try out something fishy starts happening, and no one is prepared for what happens next. What is it? You'll have to read the book to find out!

I give DRAMA QUEEN four stars because it makes you want to

I like this book because it has something for me to relate to. When I was in third grade I tried out for the play, got embarressed, and got a really small part without any speaking. And so did the main character Charlie (or Charlotte).

I think it was a good book. All in all, I liked it. Out of 10, I give it like a 6. I hope you read it, and like it as much as I did.

This book ticked me off.

Charlie was a whiny pathetic girl- the extremely clichéd "I seem shy but I have a hidden talent" type.

She took everything for advantage. When she got in the chorus she acted like it was the "worst thing ever". Big whoop.

But really what should I have expected from a Candy Apple book?

Charlotte is my favorite person in this book. I loved it, it was amazingly funny to read! If your looking for and easy but not very easy book to read over the weekend and you're a material girl living in a material world pick this up. The charecters are so relatable to people between the ages of 10 and 21.

This is simpley amazing as well but better than the book The greek stole christmas. In this book it explains how to work out with a bully and to the bully you may get something more than others but in the end something is right that used to not be right in the beginning. You must read to find out more.

This book was great because there are these two new people that just transfered to there school and the girl enters the play then she wanted to get the head of the light so she could get to see the boy better. Then this one girl got it instead it sort of made me made but then it wasnt that bad
