From the artist of BSC Graphix comes this humorous coming-of-age true story about the dental drama that ensues after a trip-and-fall mishap.

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 book was amazing. (I might give some of the book away, sorry) The representations of how bullies can affect your life and the good of standing up to a bully is great. Even though the parts that were about Raina's traumatizing teeth experiences kind of made me nervous it was still a great book. For those whobare wondering yes this is a graphic novel and yes the is Raina's real life excperince just like her second book "Sisters".

        Such an amazing book! It is a graphic novel, which makes it really an interesting read. it is really great if you don't love to read words that much but really love to see what all the characters are doing all the time.

                smile is a book that is just like a comic ,there a lot of pictures to see the characters and what is happening. most of the things that happen in smile could happen to you in real life.Smile is an autobiograpy of Raina Telgemeier. This is a book i would recommend it to people who don't like reading a lot but loves with lots of pictures.
