Have you ever had a big event that changed your life? Or had braces? Then this is the book for you! The book Smile is written by Raina Telgemeir. There was a sixth grader named Raina. One of Raina’s friend’s moms was driving her home from girl scouts.They jumped out of the car and one of the girls named Melissa said, ¨Race you!¨ The other girl said, ¨last one to the porch is a rotten egg!¨ Then Raina trips.That one trip changs Raina’s life!!! Read to find out how.

I loved the book Smile. It is an amazing book. I loved the book so much because it is not only a graphic novel that tells a great story but it is a true story .That is amazing! It is a book you will dream about if you have braces or not. When I read the story Smile, I was amazed at how that one trip could change Raina’s whole life. The whole entire story is amazing!!! One part that is amazing was when Raina stood up while she was in a lot of pain. The story Smile made me wonder how long it took to write the book Smile! I think you would love the book Smile like me!

I recommend this book to people who have braces and people who had an event that changed their life. I also recommend this book to people who want to learn about Raina’s life. I would give this book 1,000 stars. DON’T TRIP!
