Book review: Dramarama by E. Lockhart 
Overall rating: 6/10

 My favorite book in middle school was The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart, I probably read it a hundred times in sixth grade alone! So the other day when I was browsing through Barnes and Noble I stumbled upon Dramarama by E. Lockhart. I was basically flooded with memories and nostalgia, so after reading the back of the book I decided to purchase it. 

 I didn't have very high expectations for the book, especially since I already knew it was probably geared towards a younger audience and could leave me bored. However, I decided I may as well give it a shot. 

 Dramarama is about a high school girl who decides to reinvent herself by changing her name from Sarah to Sadye, and completely overhauling her wardrobe from boring jeans and t-shirts to edgy knee-high boots and mini skirts. Sadye and her sassy gay friend Demi decide to take a summer away from their homes in razzle-dazzle deprived Brenton, Ohio to go to summer theatre camp. 

 Over the course of the summer they meet all types of people they had never encountered in Ohio, and get into tons of shenanigans. They have the time of their lives with people who finally understand them, and experiment with drinking, sex and other teenage debaucheries. All the while they are starring in plays and taking theatre classes. 

 However, Sadye and Demi's friendship gets rocky when they are suddenly surrounded by hundreds of people with the same interests in theatre, dance and singing as them. In boring old Ohio they were each other's only entertainment, but they no longer have to depend on each other with new singing and dancing buddies around every corner. They find they have less in common than they thought, and are suddenly competing for lead roles and new friends. 

 I have to say I enjoyed the book more than I thought I would. While it is far from a page-turner, it is entertaining and a very easy read. Younger readers will probably get the most enjoyment out of it, and I recommend it to middle school or early high school students. 

 There are tons of theatre, dance, movie, play and musical references, so anybody even slightly interested in that world will enjoy it as well. I have to say many references went straight over my head, but I was able to get the gist. 

 Overall if you are looking for an easy summer read I would recommend Dramarama. 

Overall rating: 6/10
