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.

                  Is it bad a boy is reading this and the main character is a girl? I don't know. I just really like comics, and this one of my favorite books. It goes into all detail of how braces feel, awful. Sorry to disappoint you, if you haven't gotten them yet. Forget that, though. This was a funny book! It just revolved around the experiences around a young teenage girl, and it just feels so, REAL. Even though I wouldn't know, but believe me I've seen, I have a sister. I've seen the other books as well, like Drama, or Sisters, and I have to say, Telgemeier, you're great at what you do!
