Classic Crave: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen by Dylan Sheldon

October 28, 2008 at 3:41 pm Leave a comment

Lola has two main passions – acting and her favorite band Siddhartha. When the band announces it’s breaking up, Lola throws all her energy into convincing her mom to allow her and a friend to attend the concert and invite only party afterwards. She is also striving for the lead in the school play which her rival, Carla, has always gotten.

This was an extremely funny, laugh out loud book. Lola uses interesting turns of phrases and handles her social deep freeze with aplomb.

I watched the movie after reading this and it was OK – kept the basic plot, but things move quicker (of course) and the characters were not as well-developed. The book was definitely funnier.
