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 is awesome it like so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so okay, i mean like you should read it and you should love it so, okay. I think it is a good book. Its a little funny but so times it can be serious. I dont think it would be the kind of book to read. Because it's to big and they would finish in like a month. It's not that big though it's like a little bit hard for 6 graders but not that hard.
