Raina Telgemier is an 11 year old who is in the sixth grade. Raina was coming home from Girl Scouts one night and tripped and fell, knocking out her two front teeth. Raina has to get braces, headgear, and even a retainer with two front teeth attached. Sixth grade is tough enough. Because of Raina's injury, sixth grade got WAY harder for her. Along with family, boys, and even earthquakes! Raina has many adventures in this book and I recommend this book for anyone who likes adventures. The books graphic and pictures were amazing!
