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.

        Smile is a very good book. It is funny and a little bit sad, but I definitely recommend it. It is about a girl named Raina who knocked out her two front teeth and a lot of difficult problems ensued.

          Ohh I saw this book at Barns and Noble and it was on sale! My mom wouldn't let me get it because it is a comic book. Boo her!

                      I love this book! It tells a story about the author herself, Raina, and her "Dental Drama". She falls by getting pushed and looses her two front permanent teeth. She has a long struggles at the orthodontist, but not only that. An earthquake struck her town! Read about her life and how it ends. (Look at her picture in the back, her teeth are finally perfect!)
