A true story from Raina Telgemeier, the #1 New York
Times
bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of
Smile, Sisters,
Drama, and Ghosts!


Raina wakes up one night with a terrible upset stomach. Her mom has one, too, so it's probably just a bug. Raina eventually returns to school, where she's dealing with the usual highs and lows: friends, not-friends, and classmates who think the school year is just one long gross-out session. It soon becomes clear that Raina's tummy trouble isn't going away... and it coincides with her worries about food, school, and changing friendships. What's going on?

Raina Telgemeier once again brings us a thoughtful, charming, and funny true story about growing up and gathering the courage to face -- and conquer -- her fears.

        Guts. A true story about a young girl named Raina who's going through some middle school drama and mental health problems. This book is relatable, entertaining and you can find it easily in any school or local library. I really like the author, Raina Telgemeier. She makes the funniest and heartwarming graphic novels and their so interesting to read. If you liked 'Guts', I would highly recommend checking out her other books like "Sisters" and "Smile" (Raina is the same main character except she is a bit older). Overall, I'd rate this a full five stars!

            GUTS I really enjoyed this book I highly recommend it and my favorite part is when Raina's friends were helpful and very caring about the situation what i disliked is when it showed her Puking but the book is honestly amazing.I really like this author she is really realistic witch is a great thing. Raina's friends are really supporting in these kinda situations and my friends are just like them.I really disliked how the people at her school were mean but that is just Raina's life situation. I will try not to spoil it anymore but I hope other people feel the enjoyment about this book as much as I do.

                    The third book in the Smile series. Raina Telgemeier is ten years old, and suffering from anxiety. Almost everything she does makes her nauseous. Raina goes through therapy, puberty, and strange fears.
