Smile

Title:  Smile

Author: Raina Teglemeire

Summary: Smile is about a girl growing up trying to fit in. Then, she loses her teeth in a terrible accident! Raina is trying to fit in and look normal but needs lots of help! My favorite part is when she is taking the picture with her friends at the high school dance and finally gets a chance to smile with a “normal” mouth. The book was interesting to me because it shows how a girl can live her life even though she is made fun of. Read the book Smile this summer to see how Raina fixes her problems!

Who will like it: People who like comics.
