From the artist of BSC Graphix comes this humorous coming-of-age true story about the dental drama that ensues after a trip-and-fall mishap.

Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after Girl Scouts she trips and falls, severely injuring her two front teeth. What follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, surgery, embarrassing headgear, and even a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's still more to deal with: a major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not so friendly.

          I loved it was an amazing story about a girl in middle school who had a injury that lead to a trip through braces. She learned the true meaning of friendship.

                      This book is about a girl named Raina. Her life was going fine until during girl scouts, she tripped and broke her front two teeth. One of the teeth got pushed up into her gum, and the other one broke off. Now she's always having her new braces being taken on and off every day. Also, so many more problems are happening in school. She's having no good worthless friends and being embarrassed in front of the whole entire school. What's going to happen next? Well you'll have to read the book to find out about that! I really recommend this book to everybody.
