For singing and her ability to express herself fully through her music Can Charlie follow the example of the ultimate diva Maria Callas when it comes to her own lifeThis evocatively illustrated graphic novel brilliantly captures the high drama of middle school by focusing on the desire of its finely drawn characters to sing and be hear. Beautiful book and good storyline though it did jump around in parts that were somewhat confusing and the timeline wasn t overly clear at points Good diverse voices 3 solid stars

review Operatic

Operatic

Lassmate Emile or wondering about Luka who hasn’t been to school in weeks On top of everything she has been talked into participating in an end of year performance with her best friendsThen the class learns about opera and Charlie discovers the music of Maria Callas The she learns about Maria’s life the Charlie admires her passion. I don t know what to make of this one I almost feel like I was dropped into a blender with a couple of different books and I only caught glimpses of pages as they whizzed by As a graphic novel this lacks focus The narrative jumps around too much And unless I missed it we don t even get to find out what song Charlie picks for her project which was supposedly the whole point of the assignmentThis book tries to cover the life of Maria Callas friendship bullying sexuality nostalgia music growing up beekeeping well you get the idea It s a lot to try to smoosh into 160 pages There are some threads of story that I think could ve worked better had they been developed such as Charlie s relationships with her friends and ones that took up too much space the biography of Maria Callas that s basically sneaked in like broccoli in a kid s macaroni and cheeseThose who are passionate about music might get out of this one but even so I think it lacks enough focus to make it a truly engaging read Older readers will likely be able to relate to the music teacher and his love for 1980s music but I m afraid younger readers might feel even less enthused by the old music

    I appreciate this little novel I was browsing the library and found this and snatched it upI do enjoy opera I have seen a good number in person and I have a good collection of Opera This story is about Maria Callas and I have to admit that just listening to her really was not my favorite thing I know she was very popular but there are other divas out there that I prefer I do like a big voice and Maria Callas

    I don’t know what to say too much stuff on firea mix of conditions situations emotions that don’t get to anythingI believed in this graphic novel and instead it goes to nowhere the figure that comes out of Maria callas has nothing to do with the true history of the La DivinaI know it has been written for teen

    Eh There were so many ways Operatic could have been good Just felt like no part of the story got the attention it deserved and kinda just fell away I couldn’t really figure out exactly what the point was what exactly was I supposed to take away from it? So many aspects if developed could have made this into something much better

    Interesting if overstuffed The author throws in a lot of elements into her middle school drama like beekeeping opera '80s nostalgia musical genres bullying and LGBT issues And there are a lot of pages devoted to the life of opera s
