Teen Review: Smile

SmileTitle: Smile

 
Summary: This book is about a girl named Raina who fell down during Girl Scouts and two of her front teeth fell out.  She had to go to the dentist and she went through an adventure of putting on and taking off braces, boy/friend problems, had to have surgery, and even using a retainer with fake teeth.  But in the end she found a solution and turned out to be totally fine.
 
I started reading it because Raina Telgemeier came to my school and talked about the book and it was interesting.
 
I kept reading because this is a great book, it surprises me a lot.  Raina wrote this book about her own experience so I think this book is more like real life.
 
Main character(s): If they were in a yearbook, they would be voted: Dental Drama Girl.
 
Six Word Recap: Raina deals with drama from life.
 
This book reminded me of: How people in the real world face so many problems, it never disappears, and it bugs them so much, especially when they are in middle school and high school when friends and classmates are so “judgey.”
