cool book submitted by harajuku528 on April 8, 2011, 4:28pm it sounds like a cool book. read a little of my friend's book. h8 braces... ugh! ;)

Really quick read. submitted by coolwhipcat on July 9, 2011, 10:47am This book is great. It's such a fast-read; I read it straight through. One hour. The pictures are great; they're in color. The plot is a little unreasonable but well described.

Nice submitted by sandylib123 on July 12, 2011, 11:07am Very good book

great submitted by arjlib234 on July 12, 2011, 11:38am loved this book.

Smile! submitted by Liz Orvis on July 13, 2011, 9:00pm This was an absolutely amazing story! I flew right threw it, but was riveted by every detail. What an amazing account of some very difficult circumstances! My favorite part was the very last page, it actually gave me goose bumps. I highly recommend this graphic novel.

loved it submitted by smilely12 on July 22, 2011, 8:26pm this book is amazing

Interesting submitted by susanlam on August 11, 2011, 1:43pm I love memoir graphic novels, and this one was really fun to read! I didn't want it to end!

Really Great Book! submitted by Roxstar on June 19, 2012, 11:37am This graphic novel is the story of the Authors life. The pictures are drawn by her, and the plot is based on her own childhood! Loved every second of Smile!

fun! submitted by northeorg on June 20, 2012, 2:56pm this book is fun to read and intersting as it shows raina as she grows up
not for tweens becasue there is some stuff thats not for them
but its awesome for teens!

Smile! submitted by leehannah on June 21, 2012, 3:20pm I loved this book! I really liked the pictures. They were excellent! I definitely enjoyed the story and I don't have braces, but it kind of made me think about all of the people around me who do have braces... like my friends. My friend introduced it to me before she got braces, and later when she did get them, I don't think it was that big of a deal.

Amazing! submitted by Morgsush on July 22, 2012, 1:48pm A wonderfully drawn comic book by the talented Raina Telgemeier. You'll follow the wonderful *sarcasm* adventure of getting braces along with her in this true story from Telgemeier's childhood.

Excellent Book! submitted by ilyjtwya on July 26, 2012, 1:18pm This book was riveting and easy to connect to. Although I never had such extensive dental work, I know about the repeated pain of having your braces tightened just as your teeth start to feel okay again, and she did a great job relating the experiences. Raina did very well balancing the events that called for more detail, and summarizing what happened with other situations. It was wonderful to see what happened with her friends, as I was very bothered with how they behaved. I even found myself near tears more than once.

I haven't read many graphic novels, or biographies, but now this is easily my favorite book in both genres.

great submitted by happySeed78910 on July 28, 2012, 12:32pm it has really good pictures and it attract me to read is a millin times

AWESOME BOOK AND PICS submitted by bookworm12345 on June 17, 2013, 1:16pm awesome book. The pictures in it are just as awesome!

Awesome submitted by Motomori on June 18, 2013, 11:17am I loved this book sooooo much. It was such an easy read and almost everyone can relate to it!!!!

AWESOME submitted by egozon on June 20, 2013, 2:25pm This book is really good, I liked how the author wanted to share an extra ordinary life.

<3<3<3 submitted by xiaoli zhang on June 23, 2013, 11:22pm amazig book
raina is awesome

awsome submitted by violet3330 on June 26, 2013, 12:24pm best book ever

Excellent submitted by emeloche on August 9, 2013, 11:20am Life is complicated enough for middle-schooler Raina before she gets hurt and needs advanced dental surgery. This incredibly relatable autobiographical graphic novel chronicles the tumultuous years of Raina's junior high, focusing especially on her dental difficulties, but also touching on the everyday challenges of becoming a teenager.

Smile is an excellent example of how the graphic novel medium can be more than the sum of its parts, with the text and images working together in the "show don't tell" style. Catty dialogue of pre-teen girls show their true characters rather than outright labeling them bad friends. There are no tiresome descriptions of feelings, as the expressive illustrations convey it all without words. Kids, tweens, and teens alike will find something they can relate to, whether it's friendship challenges, crushes, or the physical and emotional pain of braces.

This book is highly recommended for upper elementary and middle school readers. Boys and girls alike will sympathize with the heart-filled story and be drawn in by the welcoming art.

=0+=)=smile is awesome! submitted by catgirl12 on April 18, 2014, 6:13pm super awesome! i can be absorbed by it in two seconds.
