It My Only Complaintsmy only complaints that a it was honestly too short not much of a gripe but i ust mean it was that good life affirming that i wanted to stay in the world longer and b it felt a little bit too much like Oral and Written Poetry in African Literature Today jane the fox me which is great because i love that book too but it had a very similar vibe and the author of this book has worked w the illustrator oftfam so theres a connection there and the illustration style was also similari don t know i loved the illustrations in this one too especially the use of colour and the actual physical book is BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 89 (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 89: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Interracial African American Romance Urban Baby Romance Short Stories) just SO PRETTY that i couldn t stop suealing when i got my hands on a copy i won t say much because it isn t out yet but i can t WAIT to sell this one and talk about it w everyone in the new year 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 kindaust 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 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 umps 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 gr Kind of soft and dreamy this graphic novel follows a middle sexuality nostalgia music gr Kind of soft and dreamy this graphic novel follows a middle girl who s discovering opera specifically Maria Callas as she s worrying about a classmate who s stopped "showing up to school It could maybe have used a bit focus but "up to school It could maybe have used a bit focus but enjoyed the feeling that I d stepped out of my world and into the main character s It feels like a slice of life indie film Really liked it ueer secondary character happy ending I don t know what to say too much stuff on firea mix of conditions situations emotions that don t get to anyt. Somewhere in the universe there is the perfect tune for youIt’s almost the end of middle school and Charlie has to find her perfect song for a music class assignment The class learns about a different style of music each day from hip hop to metal to disco but it’s hard for Charlie to concentrate when she can’t stop noticing her HingI 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 for teenagers but they need deserve to know and taste the reality "of the past and to be faked "the past and not to be faked to our desire What an outragePity Non so che dire il troppo stroppiaun mix di condizioni situazioni emozioni che non arrivano a nienteci credevo inuesta graphic novel e invece veramente con troppa carne al fuoco la figura che ne esce di Maria Callas non ha nulla a che fare con la vera storia della Divina Povera Maria che oltraggioPiet 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 Singer Maria Callas I Don T Think of opera singer Maria Callas I don t think these ingredients come together as well as they should and the writing seems a little too subtle and obtuse for the younger audience it is trying to reach but I did enjoy the story The art is a little rough in places but really succeeds in the moments when the artist tackles the difficult task of illustrating the swirl and lift of music Beautiful book and good storyline though it did ump around in parts that were somewhat confusing and the timeline wasn t overly clear at points Good diverse voices 3 solid stars This is one gorgeous graphic novelCharlie is taking a class about music and one of the assignments is to find your song Not uite your theme song but the song that speaks to you The teacher goes over all sorts of song over the years but none of them speak to CharlieAnd then she hears Maria Callas and realizes that she is her singer and she listens to everything she sings Her friends accept her for what they think is a weird obsession And she uses Maria s music to draw out Luka who has stopping coming to school because he showed to much of himself in class and feels he can not sing any It has all the middle school feels Luka is a closeted gay until he outs himself with his love song Charlie is one of only a few Asians at the school 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.
