Smile

Smile

By Raina Telgemeier

I LOVE this book. It's about a teenage girl named Raina who injures her two front teeth. She often thinks that it is embarrassing to wear headgear and braces. The surgery hurts too. It's frustrating for her to visit the dentist often. She also needs to deal with earthquakes, unfriendly friends and confusion with boys. When Raina goes to high school, she makes new, great friends who make her really " SMILE ". I really like this book. It involves friendship, courage and a little romance. I definitely recommend this book, especially kids from grades 2 to 6. I hope you enjoy it!

The Honest Truth

The Honest Truth

By Dan Gemeinhart

I've seen this book many times, and considered buying the same amount of times. For some reason I never did. Maybe subconsciously, my mind knew what a writer Gemeinhart is, and tried to spare me the tears that slipped out during the heartbreaking yet empowering moments. Maybe it was trying to stop me from reading an all too realistic and sad book that really hits close to home. Despite the endless list of "maybes," one thing's the truth. Mark, Beau, and Jessie are true friends and true fighters. And on top of that, I really wish I had picked up this book sooner, because once I did, there was no letting it down. That's the honest truth.

The Summer I Turned Pretty

The Summer I Turned Pretty

By Jenny Han

So many friends have read this book, so many praising reviews on Amazon and Good reads, so much drama swirling after Belly and which Fisher boy she will choose. I love him! No, wait, actually, hold on. I love him now! Except for a tiny piece of me that loves the other. Honestly, the writing style is unique and easy to pick up on, but the plot and everything else revolved around three characters. While these three characters' personality and character are very clearly defined and developed, it's not quite enough to turn this series into the perfect love triangle it was made out to be. There are some more mature concepts in the book, so I'd recommend it for ages 12+ Other than that, it was a simple, charismatic coming-of-age story.
