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.

      Amazing book! When, almost normal, sixth grader Raina just got back from girl scouts, her friends race to her house. She follows. Suddenly she has lost balance and fell! Nothing is broken, good. But when she feels her mouth... she notices her two front teeth are gone. This book goes through Raina's journey from fifth grade to high school. Dental drama, boys, not so friendly friends, and more all goes into one book, and only one, this one.

        I loved it. I highly recommend it, but I will say it was a little bit sad😢. It was also funny and happy. I also love how the author explained it . It was sad that it happened to her. I recommend her other books too like sisters, guts, and some of the baby sitters club and ghosts and drama.
