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.

    This is a little like what happened to me. At one point in my life I lost half a tooth and had to get braces and wear a retainer and go to the orthodonist

                  This book, Smile, is the best graphic novel I have ever read. Raina goes through starting normal, and ending normal too. But in between? First, her teeth get knocked up, that follows braces, retainers, DENTURES, headgear, and more. That covers teeth, but friends and boys? That is mixed in there too. This story is Raina from sixth to high school, friends, boys, dental drama, finding herself, and looking for the write place to look up and smile.

                      i read it on my kindle and it was good. i liked how much detail the author rania telmenger put into this book. it also kind of prepared me for the worst for when i get my braces too.
