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 liked the author's series of "The Babysitters Club," you might of heard of it. This book and "The Babysitters Club" are both graphic novels. They are fun to read, and once you start to read it, you can't stop! I finished it in one afternoon. (Maybe because I am quite of a reader. NOT A NERD!)

                    This is soothing to people who have had teeth accidents such as myself, a story of a girl (true story) who was running one night, tripped, and the consequence of that one moment changed two years of her life. Along the way she goes through unfriendly friends, a major earthquake,and finding courage in yourself

                      i love this book because it's a graphic novel and because it's a true story. It's about this girl who trips one night and loses her front top adult teeth. She has to have all this special treatment because of her teeth. i recommend this book if you like graphic novels. It's the best book i've read in a long time!!!! READ IT!!!!!!!!!!
