Junior High Drama: A Graphic Novel

by Louise Simonson
Illustrated by Sumin Cho

Welcome to Memorial Middle School, where drama fills the classrooms and follows students home on the bus. Social awkwardness. Mean girls. Hallway gossip. It's all part of life in junior high, but maybe it helps to know you aren't alone. Can Lucia avoid the boy-girl party? Will Kamilla overcome her self-consciousness and try out for the play? Can Allie keep anyone from finding out her secret? Told in graphic formal, Junior High Drama shows that while you can't escape the drama, you can certainly survive it.

"Sensitive and never preachy, this work focuses on the very real problems young teens face. . . .Complex, flawed characters learn through experience and the support of family and friends. The cast is diverse and realistically depicted, and the art is expressive, with a palette of pinks and purples. With its mix of wisdom and fun, this title will be a hit with most middle grade readers." - School Library Journal
