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 got this book at the book fair when I saw the braces on the front. It was funny because I was getting braces a week after the book fair, so I bought this book to see what braces are like. The book was great and it made me less scared about getting braces. I don't have braces now, but when I did, everyday I smiled cuz of this book.

              Getting braces, headgear, losing two front teeth is hard, but Riana can figure it out, it hurts and it may bleed a lot but she will make it through high school and middle school.

                      When I read this book I absolutly loved it! for anyone who didnt read defidently read it now! I could not put it down! Whenever my mom told to come down for diner I didnt come down till an hour later when I finished the book. That is to show that it is a great book and it is one of the best books I ever read! Go Raina!
