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 is another enjoyable comic by Rainda Telgemeier. In this book, Raina shows her story about her in 4th grade always getting a stomachache whenever she feels anxious or nervous. On a night when Raina's sister, Amanda, has a stomach flu, Raina wakes up in the middle of the night with a horrible stomachache. She starts throwing up -- her mother too. On the next day of school, she gets really anxious and rushes to the restroom. She basically got traumatised of having stomachaches and ending up throwing up, so that is why she always starts to act a little... nauseous. Her mother starts bringing her to a therapists, to help her on her upset stomach and help Raina opening up a bit. This story ends up really enjoying for me, because it has all types of details and many comfortable drawings in the comics.

                  Honestly, I don't get why people like Raina Telgeimer that much. That is my opinion. I felt like the story wasn't developed enough and the book had awkward moments that made me not able to understand the character a lot. There are a lot of better books out there than this, like Invisible Emmie, or Be Prepared. Sorry if my review was offensive, but I jut feel that way about Raina. I enjoyed Smile a LOT but the rest of her books were just meh... once again, my opinion, and please don't have anything against me just because I feel this way.

                      I love this book. Whoever hasn't read it should. I think Its mostly about having the GUTS to face your fears. Plus, I'm pretty sure A LOT of people have emetophobia. ( the fear of vomiting) Plus,I think I do. Even though Raina Telgmeier has written a lot of successful books. I personally think this is one of the best, from the author who brought you Smile,Sisters, Drama, Ghosts, and now Guts. Read this book!
