about

From the artist of The Baby-sitters Club Graphix comes this humorous and charming true story!

Eleven-year-old Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after a trip-and-fall mishap, she injures her two front teeth, and what follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, corrective 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.

This coming-of-age true story is sure to resonate with anyone who has ever been in middle school, and especially those who have had a bit of their own dental drama.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Smile A New York Times bestseller 2011 Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Publication for Teens 2010 Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor, Nonfiction A New York Times "Editors' Choice" "It hits home partly because there is nothing else out there like it." -The New York Times Book Review "[T]he real focus of Smile is Telgemeier's search for identity, a universal experience with which readers will readily identify." -Washington Post "An utterly charming graphic memoir of tooth trauma, first crushes and fickle friends, sweetly reminiscent of Judy Blume's work . . . . Irresistible, funny and touching-a must read for all teenage girls." -Kirkus Reviews "A charming addition to the body of young adult literature that focuses on the trials and tribulations of the slightly nerdy girl." -Publishers Weekly
