She calls me the Drama Queen, though not to my face. Sometimes I hear her on the phone to my dad or her parents. You may not believe this, but I once bumped into Johnny Depp in the East Village.

She calls me the Drama Queen, though not to my face. Oh, the Drama Queen? she’ll say. This week she seems to be in an Edward Albee play. He was coming out of a restaurant, and I didn’t see him because I had these really sick sunglasses on and they more or less made me legally blind. Usually, though, if I wanted to meet an actor I’d find out where they were shooting a movie. I met Robert De Niro, Robin Williams, Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer like that.

Book 1 of 3 in the Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen Series. While there are some bumps along the way, this is one ride that you don't want to miss. Dyan Sheldon is the author of many books for young people, including My Worst Best Friend and The Crazy Things Girls Do for Love, and a number of stories for younger readers.

I thought that this was a relatively fun, fresh book, but there was some... shall I say bad things about it.
Mary Cep, or as she stubbornly likes to be known as Lola, is a major drama queen. She is positive she will be the next big thing in Hollywood. Some time. When Lola's mother moves her and her two totally gross little sisters out of New York City and into the suburbs, Lola is sure she will be the savior to so many poor souls in Dellwood. Or as she calls it, Deadwood. Then she meets Carla Santini, the local bully and snob, and that whole part of the book's (the WHOLE book!) is pretty predictable. It's through Lola's obsessive love for her favorite band, Sidhartha, that Lola gets her and her best friend and "sister of my soul", Ella, alot of... adventure.
I won't give away the rest. Parts of this book was really funny and it was hard not to laugh out loud, whether I was in public or not, but Lola's interpretation of every thing got boring. Finally when you get to the exciting part, it's Lola's friend, Ella, who is being more of the heroine.
I felt that this book ended alot like it began. In "the Big Freeze". The book is worth reading, but still lacking in many ways.
This isn't really my style if book. It was cliche and silly. Its a pretty basic story. I have trouble liking a book if I can't like the main character, and that's the way it was in this book.

Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

by Dyan Sheldon

If you read often, you are aware what a good book consists of. The title of a good book draws you in, and won't let you stop reading until you are done, leaving you begging for a sequel. Compelling, realistic characters with real faults and problems like us, interesting plots that twist and turn in such a way that you can never guess what's coming always add up to a highly acclaimed and appreciated book. One book that I know to contain all these things is Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, by Dyan Sheldon. The basic summary of this book is as follows. Mary Cep (who prefers to be called Lola) is a dramatic teenage girl who is forced by her mother to move to "Deadwood" New Jersey. Lola absolutely hates it, until she meets Ella Gerard. Ella becomes her best friend and "soul sister". The thing about Ella is that she is a great student, very polite, very shy, and keeps to herself. Lola is the exact opposite. This is one reason that this book is so compelling, because of the contrasting characters. In the middle of the book, Sidhartha, Ella and Lola's favorite band, breaks up, but first announces they are having one last concert. Ella and Lola plan everything out so they can sneak to NY to see the concert. They ride on a train, but they lose their money and when they get to the concert, they don't have enough for a ticket! A little ways after, they are back at home, where Ella's parents have no idea they even left. Carla Santini, the most popular girl in the grade, insists she didn't even see them at the after-party, even though Lola and Ella claim they were there...or were they? Everyone believes Carla, so how will Lola and Ella convince everyone that they really went to the Sidhartha concert?

The main characters in this book are hysterical, yet very believable. The main cast consists of Lola, Ella, and Carla Santini. Lola, of course, is highly melodramatic; this makes her adored by her friend Ella. Lola is always thinking the opposite of everyone else, of her acting career, and of herself, a trait which she doesn't realize she has: selfishness. She doesn't often stop to care about what others are feeling and thinking; to Lola the world is hers and hers alone, and everyone cares about even her tiniest worries. She tends to tell some pretty tall tales also. By the end of the book, Lola realizes this and changes her look on things . Ella, a polite, quiet member of the Gerard family (known to be perfect at all times) is very loyal to Lola, and learns to be more outgoing. Ella learns from Lola that not everything has to be perfect. The connection between these two works well for both their personalitlies, and as they become accustomed to the other, they take upon themselves the attitude of the other, except not quite as extreme. Ella learns to speak up. Lola learns to not always be the center of attention. The next character is Carla Santini, the high ruler of the BTW's (Born to Win's) is tall, skinny, pretty, and everyone looks up to her (excluding Ella and Lola.) From the beginning, she detests Lola, and is always looking for ways to make her mad. At first her tricks don't daunt Lola, but near the end, Lola breaks down under all the pressure. Carla uses her popularity to get whatever she wants, and she wants everyone to hate Lola.

When I discovered this book, my friend was very absorbed in it and wouldn't let me begin her copy until she was done. This gave me the correct impression that it was a really good book. As soon as I got my hands on it, I started reading. The beginning of this book draws you in so much, you forget where you really are and assume you are on the steps of Deadwood High. The style of writing in this book is very dramatic, narrated by Lola herself through the whole book. The genre is realistic fiction. It was definitely a page turner; the pace is fast and there is constantly conflict. I myself really personally connected with Lola, because I have lost important money before too, and I know how she felt. If I had to use five adjectives to describe this book, I would use: witty, funny, inspiring, dramatic and romantic. Teens and adults alike will enjoy this wonderful "comedy of errors" by Dyan Sheldon, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen is a cool subject-cool writing-fun and interesting plot. It is baced on a modern teenage girl who is in fact a drama queen. Mary Elizabeth Cep or Lola as she prefers to be called is from New York City. She loves catching every ones eye. Then her and her family, twin sisters and her single mother who makes pots move to New Jersey while her father (her parents are divorced.)still lives in New York City. She then goes to school at Dellwood high or as she calls it " Deadwood." She finds out that there is a play comming up Pygmalion set on modern-day in New York City with the main part being Eliza Doolittle as the part that Carla and Lola want. Lola has to compete with the girl who has stood out to everyone in school and is everyoness role model.
Lola is independent- unique person. She likes standing out and being her own person. For an example, one week she wore just black, another the rainbow. Lola is "going to be a great actor." She has focused her whole life and determination to being the great actor she is meant to be. Then, she meets one person and becomes her best-friend, Ella. They both love the band Sidhartha. Lola most of all likes Stu Wolff more, who she has a big crush on.He is the songwriter and lead singer of Sidhartha. The terrible news now is that the band is breaking up. The band is going to have a far well concert in New York City. After that there is going to be an after party.
Carla and her group are making everyone at school not talk to Lola and Ella because Lola got the part to the play. They are not use to having another person competing with them for there spot aat school.Lola neverbacks down either. Witch gets Carla really mad. That's what pushes Lola to keep doing it too. When Lola lies and Ella thinks she is going to get caught doesn't make Lola nervous. It just makes her work harder for it. That makes it really interesting and exciting too.
I think that this book is made for all pre-teens and teens. I think you should all read it. It is a funny, wild, and dramatic book. I think a lot of girls could relate to these characters. The characters are very different but so alike. Crazy thinks go on thatmake you want to keep reading. Lola is very dramatic thuogh. she will go to the farthest extent beford she gives up getting her way. Once her mind is set on something, you better belivie it will come true. Lola is the most dramatic person i have ever heard of. her controverstes go on forever. I think I would read it again though. It was adventurous. Thi is one of the best books I have read.
