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.

    Based on Raina Telgemeier's childhood, Raina is just a normal 6th grader until one night as she is racing her friends home after a Girl Guide meeting, she trips and smashes her face into the concrete knocking out her two front teeth. After that everything changes. I recommend this book because the auther gave us a piece of herself in this story and her resilience was incredible.
