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 love this book. Even though I'm in middle school, i can relate to Raina. I have crushes and friend problems. I had braces. Now i have a retainer. It took me about a week and a half to read this book. maybe a little less. It is a quick read. I totally recommend it.
