Smile

By Carolyn, Age 10

This book reminds me of Smile by Raina Telgemeier. Raina was only in sixth grade and was going home from girl scouts when she had a bad fall, knocking out her two front teeth. Raina had to go through off and on braces, embarrassing headgear, and a retainer with fake teeth attached to it and it got worse. Raina also goes through an earthquake, boy confusion, and then Rainas’ friends turn out to be fake friends who always bully her because of her teeth, and say it makes her look like a 6 year old, but at the end, Raina finds true friends and finally gets her teeth back to normal.

It makes me feel finally seen because even when you are going through a tough time, people can help you and don’t forget to smile even when it is hard.
