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.

      This is one of my favourite books, and I'm sure it will be yours too. The visuals are absolutely INCREDIBLE and this book is based on a true story. Raina, the girl who just wants to be normal, trips after a girl scouts meeting and severely injures her two front teeth. After that, a long long journey follows with braces on and off, multiple surgeries, headgear and even fake teeth! Even with all the trouble, she still must deal with an earthquake, friendship problems and moving to different schools. Along the way, Raina discovers herself and her artistic ability. She figures out the real Raina, finds her true friends and where she can really smile. As I said before, this book is 100% based on real events, considering the author herself is Raina! You will love this book, and definitely recommend it to the world. It will motivate you, and help yourself find your true path to life.

        I love this book! It's so fun following Raina through her life as she faces challenging problems including breaking her front teeth! This book is in comic style, so there aren't as many words. Read this!

                  Amazing book! Read a million books but best so far! Good to read if going to get braces to see what it would be like to have braces. Cool to see that an author got braces and was scared but over came it to become a great author! Want the book!
