Notes From Your Bookseller
As someone who once had to wear braces (twice!), I adore Telgemeier’s graphic novel Smile. This book has it all: drama, humor, and memorable characters. The message of the story is endearing and reminds us that behind every dazzling smile is a cool pair of braces!
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.
