Review: Smile by Raina Telgemeier

From Goodreads:
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.

Genre: Graphic novel, middle grade

Format: paperback

So this was actually kind of adorable. This middle grade graphic novel is the author’s actual childhood. It’s all about braces and how you shouldn’t let your appearance influence how you live your life and not to let other people walk all over you, which is a very inspiring message actually.

It was a fun, fast read and it’s always interesting to read an autobiography in graphic novel form.
