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.

        The author came to my school and told us the details to everything about this book, (her teeth are so straight now!). It is quite a lovley book facing the problems the a lot of people face, and tells how she over comes it.

            I loved this book. If you think having just braces is bad, you're wrong. Raina tripped, and thats when it started. She had many teeth surgeries and at the end, has perfect teeth. This book is a comic book form. This story is a true story., and is highly recommended.
