Simply because life is too short to cry for anything. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people. Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh, and feel loved.

I absolutely loved this graphic novel, eventhough it brought back many painful memories of my own experience with having braces. This graphic novel is sort of like a cross between a Judy Blume novel and a For Better or Worse comic. The story is written with tons of humour and portrays the awkwardness of being a teen extremely effectively. The story is fast paced, realistic and I think would appeal to the reluctant reader as well as most pre-teen and teen readers.
Definately required reading for those who have or have had braces. I think it would be great if all Orthodentists had a copy of this in their offices -- and a few of them REALLY should read it They might even learn how to be a little more sympathetic with their patients. The underlying message of encouraging us to focus more on what we are on the inside rather than how we look on the outside is very sublty done and not at all preachy.
This book was very… cute. Was I necessarily engaged while reading? I expect more from the books I read, especially graphic novels, than what was presented here. I found it very basic. There w This book was very… cute. There was no complexity. I could see what was coming and apart from occasionally getting upset with her friends I did not get emotionally involved.
It was a quick read and it was over before I really noticed but not in the way that completely engrosses you as a reader, just that the story was so much like a glorified comic strip it flew by. As a teacher, I would probably have this in my classroom library. I would keep it in case a student was a struggling reader, or if I wanted an example of a graphic novel though I feel I can keep better examples than this.
I would not consider teaching it. I intend to teach high school and as such I would hope this would be a little below their level. I would recommend this to an early middle school student or a child I knew was about to get braces to sort of ease their worries about what was going to happen to them. View all 10 comments. Touching, intensely personally relatable and while of course not as in-depth as I would have expected and needed in a non graphic novel, Raina Telgemeier's Smile has both hit the spot for me and brought forth many pleasant and sometimes also not so pleasant memories.
For while I might not have experienced and this thankfully the kind of dental and orthodontial nightmares that Raina Telgemeier obviously had to endure as a young teenager, I can and do very much empathise and understand, as a ver Touching, intensely personally relatable and while of course not as in-depth as I would have expected and needed in a non graphic novel, Raina Telgemeier's Smile has both hit the spot for me and brought forth many pleasant and sometimes also not so pleasant memories.
Four stars rounded up to a full five stars, as I have indeed very much enjoyed if not loved both narrative and illustrations and been really and truly touched by Raina Telgemeier's delightfully frank openness, and heck, as a person of German extraction and language instructor, I cannot help but wax poetic about the scene where Raina is obviously taking German at school and that the relevant illustrations actually have ALL of the German language words spelled with no grammar or orthographical mistakes.

It is a true story about the author herself. It was nominated for a Red Dot Award in It tells the story of Raina's life from middle school to high school. You might think that a book just about middle school and high school is boring but not when the unexpected happens.
In this book, it's when Raina falls down one day as she is running back home when her two front teeth fall out as they smash against the ground. From brac Smile by Raina Telgemeier is a realistic fiction graphic novel. From braces to headgear to even root canals, Raina tells us how she survives school. I think this a really good and interesting book. It's good because many of us middle school girls can relate to it.
I felt I could relate to it because I have braces right now and I know how that experience is. It also keeps you engaged making you want to read the whole book in one day. Once you start this book, there's no stopping. The events keep hooking you because event after event there are interesting things. Raina illustrates and describes the scenes really well because you can actually step into the character's shoes and start to live their life and see how they feel about things.
I feel even though this is a comic book, the imagery is very good because you can dream about yourself in that situation. I would probably recommend this to middle school girls as it's mostly a girl book and they type of situations are what we can relate to in real life.
It's also quite easy to understand and easy to follow the story. View all 8 comments. Mar 23, Briar's Reviews rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens-books , education , art , family , cute , biography , guilty-pleasure , comics , one-hit-wonders , ya-obsessions.

Raina's story echoes a lot of my own, and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see a story like this get shared. Many kids will face dental issues and bullying, so a book like this could do wonders for them!

I also just wanted some more cute graphic novels in my life, so that helped a lot. I was honestly surprised how addicting and easy to read this book was.

Middle school and high school are hard, especially when going through the pain of braces and surgeries I for one, can attest to that. Some of the major positives of this book are as follows: 1.

The story was fast, easy to read, and quite fun despite all the pain Raina was going through. Raina standing up to her bullies was a serious "high-five" moment for me. Go Raina! You do you, girl! There's lots of little references to my own childhood in this book, so I can totally see adults digging this book along with their kids.
Seriously, this book can be read by "all ages". It's a great read! Negatives: 1. I didn't realize this book was a memoir at first. I'm not sure if it was obvious or if I just missed it. That's literally the only negative I can find. This book is great!
In all honesty, I love this book. I would definitely recommend readers pick this book up for a little fun and a lot of nostalgia. Who doesn't forget those dreaded dentist appointments? Or if you were lucky enough to have braces, the craziness of those appointments!
Five out of five stars! Mar 23, kristen rated it it was amazing Shelves: , graphic-novels. A graphic novel I picked up for my 6th grader who just got braces. She read it this afternoon from cover to cover, finished, then walked over to our computer to search for more books written by Telgemeier. I quickly read it myself and am glad I did!
