Smile by Raina Telgemeier


Smile by Raina Telgemeier

Raina just wanted to be a normal girl, 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 not be so friendly.


I so enjoyed reading Smile, I couldn't put it down. It's excellent! -- Lynn Johnston, creator of For Better or For Worse

Irresistible, funny and touching. -- Kirkus Reviews

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
