Description

Raina Telgemeier's #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling and Eisner Award winning graphic memoir is now available in eBook!

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 07, 2009 – A charming addition to the body of young adult literature that focuses on the trials and tribulations of the slightly nerdy girl. Telgemeier's autobiographical tale follows her from sixth grade, when her two front teeth are knocked out during a fluke accident, through high school, when, her teeth repaired, she bids good-bye to her childhood dentist. Like heroines stretching from Madeleine L'Engle's Vicky Austin through Judy Blume's Margaret to Mariko and Jillian Tamaki's Skim, Raina must navigate the confusing world of adolescence while keeping her sense of self intact. Many of her experiences are familiar, from unrequited crushes to betrayals by friends to embarrassing fashion choices. The dramatic story of her teeth, however, adds a fresh twist, as does her family's experience during the San Francisco earthquake in 1989. Although the ending is slightly pedantic, Telgemeier thoughtfully depicts her simultaneous feelings of exasperation and love toward her parents, as well as her joy at developing her artistic talent she's deft at illustrating her characters' emotions in a dynamic, playful style. This book should appeal to tweens looking for a story that reflects their fears and experiences and gives them hope that things get easier. Ages 9 13.

Love this book then and now<3

I first read this when I was in sixth grade, and absolutely fell in LOVE with it. I would read it all the time over and over and would never get tired of it. I just got it back out the other day and started to read it against and instantly fell back in love! This book is so great and just will probably be one of my favorites, it has been for 2 years<3 #smile

Here is the thing. U see that frowny face up there? Well, I let someone borrow the book on my brother's b day. It was a friend. She never gave it aback for more than two years. Of course she didn't keep it for life, lol :P. So, I decided to download it. Ever since I got the book, i read it over and over again. I was just in second grade. Anyways it is an extremely good book. Thanks for reading this review. :)
