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 book starts out with a girl who falls and needs to have a bunch of stuff done to her mouth. First a retainer then braces and a bunch of orthodontist appointments. I read this book so many times because it is ne of my all time favorites.😀

            It was pretty good overall, but as it was a graphic novel the book seems longer than it is, It only took me about an hour to read.

                    Smile by Raina Telgemeier is awesome because Raina does not want to get fake teeth. But once when she was playing with her friends she fell down and her teeth were bleeding. So Raina tryed to hid her fake teeth. This book is the best. If you go not like comic books you will not like this book. This book is for people who like comic books. Hope you have fun reading this book. !!!!
