Smile by Raina Telgemeier

Raina has just turned thirteen; she is finally a teenager! Unfortunately she also fell and lost her two front teeth - actually, her teeth were pushed up into her gum. This puts a serious crimp in her plans for being a cool kid in high school!

This doesn't sound like a fun book to read, but I can assure you it is!

This is the story of Raina's freshman year of high school and her long, frustrating, and painful experiences with her various dentists. Along with her many dental problems, Raina also has a serious crush on a boy in school, but who will look at her when she looks like a vampire with fangs.Imagine looking like a vampire when you smile! Imagine having to wear a dental headset when you sleep and then, finally, having to get your two front teeth pulled and having to wear two fake front teeth - all when you have just begun high school!

This graphic novel just took me one night to read, so if you are looking for a fun, quick book to read, pick this one up!
