Reviews & Summaries
But the skill level relative to the drama production is where I was really shaking my head. I'm supposed to believe an 8th grader can design and make all costumes for a period piece (including boning in corsets??), a 7th grader design all the sets and manage their production? Sorry, but no. Especially not without significant adult help, and we barely even see the teacher sponsor in this. I suppose this is another example of absent adults so the main characters can have the dramatic literary tension, but that ruined it for me. (My drama experience: sister of a costume designer. Even in college she wasn't doing shows on her own!) Because I couldn't think of these characters as tweens, the rest fell flat.
