Raina Telgemeier’s tale of middle school self-esteem continues to sell and sell and it’s a beloved story to the kids who read it. It’s been on the NY Times Best Seller list for 12 weeks, on and off.
2012 sees Telgemeier’s next book, DRAMA and it’s another bullseye to the interests of middle-schoolers, dealing with the ever popular school play. On her blog, she just released the cover and it looks like another winner.
DRAMA comes out in September.
