By Raina Telgemeier
Scholastic, 2010. 214 pgs. Young Adult Comics

An autobiography in graphic novel format describes how the author lost two of her front teeth in an accident when she was twelve, and her subsequent struggles with various corrective dental techniques throughout adolescence.

Even though I’ve never had braces, I could identify with many of the things Raina went though as I thought back on my own experiences in Junior High and High School. This book was funny and a quick read. I’d recommend it to anyone who has spent time at the dentist’s office and especially middle school girls.
