Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school's production of Moon Over Mississippi, she can't really sing. Instead she's the set designer for the drama department stage crew, and this year she's determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn't know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen. And when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier!
Plot: Callie absolutely loves the theatre, especially musicals. What she learned early on though, was that she couldn’t sing, so she became a part of the set crew. When she meets a set of twin brothers who want to help with the musical, she finds herself falling for one of them and then drama ensues. I am in love with Raina’s beautiful graphic novels. Her books tell a bit of her own past as a drama geek, only adding some twists to the story. The story is well-written and really shows being gay as something that is not that big of a deal.
