By Luiza, Age 9

I felt finally seen when I read the book Guts because she had a lot going on with her teeth and she had to get braces and I got invisaligns and she really had a hard time going through it and so am I.

Even though she isn’t brazileon, I can relate to her really well. In the whole book she was having problems with her teeth and that was probably for over a year. I have to have invisaligns for over a year. It sucks.

When some of her friends teased her about her teeth, I felt like I could relate since 

sometimes my friends make fun of my teeth but they don’t know it hurts my feelings and I

don’t have the guts to stand up for it.

We don’t have a lot in common, but she made a big difference in my life, and that book is still there, in my room, just standing tall on the shelf.
