To celebrate the release of her new graphic novel DRAMA today, Raina Telgemeier is running a contest with prizes of original art and more. The follow-up to her incredibly popular SMILE, DRAMA concerns middle schoolers caught up in the drama of a school play. With full color art and a storyline full of emotional twists and turns, we’re guessing it’s going to be another hit. (Here are the NY Times review and the Publishers Weekly review.)
