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 think that this book is very relatable and is so fun and silly. i think that lots of girls and maybe even guys would be able to relate to it.

                I thought this book was full of funny moments and I enjoyed looking at all the colored pictures. I also new how the character felt when she had to get braces because I had to get braces too.

                    I have read this book about 1,000 times. Rachel Renee Russell is such a good author. She also writes the babysitters club book series. She is so good at drawing pictures.
