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.

            I really love this book because it is a true story! and I think that it's great that the author made this book " Smile" in a comic book. This book is about a girl who was raising her friend and she fell. Then she ends up loosing her grown up teeth. This girl has to get all these thing to help her with her teeth. This all happened to the author it is a very great book you have to read it if you like true stores and even if you don't like true stores just read this book!.
