“Smile” by Raina Telgemeir

This a very popular graphic novel in my school library. I saw we have Telgemeir’s newer GN “Drama”, but not the older “Smile.” This is a graphic memoir about a pre-teen/barely teen who trips and falls so hard she knocks out her two front teeth. The story describes surgery, braces, embarrassing mouthware and not-so-nice-friends in a coming of age story. It also won the Eisner Award for best graphic novel. Recommended for grades 4 and up.
