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.

      I liked this book because, the part when she knocks her teeth out. I really liked how some people could actually relate to how she has braces, goes to middle school, and stuff like that. I hope you read it!

          This book may relate to some middle school girls. It is about a girl, who fell pretty badly and needs braces. She really doesn't want them because she is afraid that everyone will make fun of her.Please read the book!!!!

            Smile is an absolutely stunning graphic novel, it has beautiful art work and a great story. It's a fast read it only took me about 2 hours to finish I didn't want to put it down. it's a great book about surviving middle school/ high school, dealing with bullying, and learning to love yourself. I recommend this book if you like graphic novels or just books with lots of illustrations and you want a quick read.

              Let's start... Smile was a novel that I had fun reading. If your looking for a fun and light contemporary, graphic novel, then Smile is the one. I really loved how the author wrote about her life, that makes it HER story. (Literally) I loved Raina and Amara. I really loved their 'modern life'. The graphic novel is so gripping that you'll find yourself finishing it in one day and buying six copies at the end. In all, I really loved this graphic novel, it's light, funny, and full of love.

                  Raina only ever wanted to fit in. But one night, a terrible accident occurs, and she injures her two front teeth. She has constant trips to the dentist office, and she suddenly feels different. But as years pass, and gets into high school, she begins to question who her real friends are. Boy drama becomes confusing, and she also has to deal with her obnoxious siblings every day. I mean, who said live was fair?

                    This book is a very nice book. It is about this girl who falls and breaks her top teeth. It goes through the adventure she had to go through. She looses her old friends but she meets new friends at a different school.
