From the artist of BSC Graphix comes this humorous coming-of-age true story about the dental drama that ensues after a trip-and-fall mishap.

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! Its a hillarious book. I can relate to Raina when she had braces because I also had a painful experience with them too. Also Raina and her sister fight alot just like my sister and I do. I would really recomend it.

            When I was in third grade, my friend gave this book to me. At the time, I had braces, and they prevented me from doing many things. This book is a story about a girl who had to deal with far worse than just braces. I suggest you read this for comfort during a time of difficulty in your mouth.

              This a graphic novel that is about a girl that ends up having to go through this painful braces procedure because she fell down and knocked out a tooth and pushed one up into her gums. Read this book to find out everything else that happened.

                The book is really interesting and I could read it a million time. Sometimes I Felt sorry for Raina and happy for Raina other times. My favorite part was when she my friends with the girl when she was in gym.

                    I don't really like graphic novels, but I loved this one. I could not believe this book was based on the authors middle to high school years. I was very intriguing and the book had many positive messages, even though not all problems were solved.
