Two theater-mad, self-invented, fabulositon Ohio teenagers.
One boy, one girl.
One gay, one straight.
One black, one white.
It’s a season of hormones,
gold lamé,
hissy fits,
jazz hands,
song and dance,
true love,
and unitards
that will determine their future–and test their friendship.

Very smart and very funny… theater lovers will swoon, and everyone else will appreciate the twists and the ending you don’t see coming.

Jealousies swirl, talent shines and insecurities bloom amid the intense competition, reflected in Lockhart’s zippy prose. … Anyone with the acting bug will grab this and devour it in one bite. Exhilarating

Dramarama far surpasses other books that I have read. Aside from the hilarious plot and narration, E. Lockhart adds in issues that anyone who reads this novel is able to connect with.
Teens will identify strongly with both the heartbreak and the humor in this authentic portrayal of friendships maturing and decaying….An effervescent read, this is an excellent purchase.
