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, and 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.

This book was very funny i thought when she broke her tooth she would be frightened to go to school because the students might make fun of her. i was right was was a little afraid but in the end she got over it. I would recomened this book to older and younger readers that are interest in agood laugh.

Smile by Raina Telgemeier is a great book.Raina tripsn and falls after girl scouts and end up loosing her two front teeth. But it's just the begining as it's a long road to recovery. Braces, sugery, all the dental mixhaps all in one! I love the way it's based in a modern cartoon and how Raina has based it on her life. I've read Drama as well and they are both great. I highly recommend this book for 11+, but it does not stop adults reading this great book! I can't wait for Raina Telgemeier to make another master piece!

Ages: 11+

Stars: ***** (5/5)
