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, without a doubt, one of the best graphic novels I've read in a long time. It is a refreshing change, going from crazy, out of this world fantasy novels, to a good, heartwarming true story that can and did happen. The story line was funny and interesting, with just the right amount of detail to keep you hooked, and funny bits in all the right places. I would recommend this book to kids in fourth to sixth grade with a lower reading level, or for any bookworm of any age who is just plain bored.

              It is certainly an interesting book. I strongly recommend it! It was a comic, which I certainly enjoyed. It is a book that I want to read as many times as I can!

                I really love this book. It takes place in San Francisco, California, where I used to live! In the very beginning, the main character is racing with her friends to her front door, when she falls flat on the ground and her two front teeth have come out! After years and years of pain and dentist treatment, she gets fake teeth, braces, and much much more. She is just struggling because her two front teeth just won't grow back! It is an amazing story of a girl, who loses her two front teeth. This has to be one of the best comic like book I have ever read!

                    The minute I opened this book, I was captured right away into the moment. The main character suffers through the fact of having her teeth fixed and she is in extreme pain? However her friends act nice to her to make her feel better but here sister keeps on making fun of her such calling her metal mouth because she is getting braces. Even though you may not be into comics, you should still read this amazing book.
