written by E. Lockhart
Dramarama was a complete flop. E. Lockhart is pretty good at this, writing some books that just blow you away, some that you want to throw away. This definitely goes with the latter. I didn't go into it expecting much--theatre kids have always and will always annoy me to no end. While I did grow to love some characters, "Sadye" was not one of them. She's such a stereotypical drama girl--made up name, made up life, full of her fake self. While the narration was pure E. Lockhart, the subject matter was just...dull. I'm sure a drama lover would like it more than I did, but...I'm clearly not a drama lover. There was nothing that made me care about the characters, and the one I ended up liking most was Demi of all people (and I am quite conservative when it comes to things like homosexuality, which should tell you about the quality of these characters.) It was one of Sarah's quotes that cinched it for me: "I hated her neediness, her naked, naked feelings" and that was exactly why I hated her. The ending was unbearably horrible, another one of those books like Sweethearts where it all is going so well and then randomly and pointlessly falls apart.
(Don't worry, I'm done with the E. Lockhart bashing for now. Coming up sometime this afternoon, hopefully, are my reviews for The Boyfriend List and The Boy Book and they are happy reviews =D)
