The drama club is putting on Moon Over Mississippi this year, and Callie couldn't be more excited. She knows she's not going to get a part--she's a terrible singer--but this year, she'll be the set designer, and she's determined to make this the best set ever, even though they have no budget, or a lot of help in getting the props done. Even building a cannon that can fire onstage is easy compared to everything else that's going on: a crush on a new friend, an old friend acting really strangely, and the star of the play who hates everyone (except her costar). Even when you're backstage, there's no end of drama!

Telgemeier again knocks it out of the park with regard to middle school relationships and concerns, all with a friendly, inviting art style that's instantly recognizable as hers. I'll be talking this up at the middle school this fall--not that I'll need to do any pushing at all to get this out the door.
