Raina Telgemeier's #1 New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award-winning graphic memoir based on her childhood!

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.

I love this book.

My dad read this to me a couple years ago, he's an orthodontist. Reading this again gave me some nice nostalgia! It's a great book.

Its such a good book lets say that you like dentist, friends, boys,family, school and growing up then smile is the book that you shall read because its a ten star review⭐⭐

I really liked this book, and that's saying something because I am not a huge fan of graphic novels. It's an incredible story, and Raina really changes towards the better at the end. Recommended for sure!
