Smile by Raina Telgemeier is an endearing story about the trials and tribulations of having braces...among other things! I don't usually prefer graphic novels when I pick a book to read. This one surprised me! I felt like I really got to know Raina, who is the main character in the book. Watch this fantastic book trailer made by the folks at Scholastic/Graphix with music by Harry and the Potters.
Now that you know a little about Raina's story, I think you should go get the book - you will love it!
Also, Scholastic has a You Be the Author section on their website page for Smile that will allow you to create your own page for a graphic novel. It's really fun!
