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.

    An amazing book about a girl that has to get braces that causes her to get bullied by her former friends! Super relatable! I would suggest reading Guts or Sisters first just to get to know the character better. I believe that this book gives a theme that it doesn't matter what you look like it matters if you're a good person or not
