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.

        For you girls that have braces or are getting braces and have a lot of trouble with your teeth and haven't read this book yet then I think you should read this book.

                I love this book because I have braces and I had a hard time ajusting to braces. But later I got use to them, Just like Raina.

                    When I got to the end, I realized it was a true story! I couldn't believe it! This story was so sad. Raina's friends were bullying her, her teeth fell out, and it was just a sad story. In the end however, she gets new friends
