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.
My daughter got her braces in the sixth grade, so when she saw the book in the store, she wanted to read it. She told me it’s the best book she’s read in a long time. She laughed constantly.
She also loved that it was set up as a graphic novel which she’s starting to read more.
After reading this book, she asked to buy the other books by the author. I’m so happy she found a new favorite author and series.
