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 book Smile is about a young girl named Raina who had to wear braces. It all started when she went to a scout meeting and she knocked out her two front teeth when she was running and fell down. She then had to go to the orthodontist. The orthodontist checked her teeth and said that her two front teeth had been pushed backwards, further into her gums and she said that she looked like a vampire. Raina felt scared because she was getting braces and thought that she would look like a nerd and she also had to wear two fake front teeth. She has friends but they were so mean that they should not be called friends so when she started growing up she found new friends that treated her equally. In the end she found out that she was worrying about her looks more than focusing on her interest. This taught Raina a big lesson in life .

          I have this book at home. It's just so amazing and I keep reading it. It really gave me support because I had some friendship problems at school and I was in the exact same situation Raina was in. This supported so much I have to say, this is my favourite book so far. I just love it! Raina Telgemeier is so talented!
