From School Library Journal
Grade 5 Up—When she was in sixth grade, Telgemeier tripped while running and lost her two front teeth. In the years that followed, she went through a torturous series of dental surgeries and repairs, the trauma of which was mirrored by the social struggles she experienced during her adolescence. A minor complaint is that there is no mention of when all of this took place, and readers may be puzzled by seeming anachronisms such as old-school Nintendo games. Telgemeier's full-color artwork is confident and light, and her storytelling is appropriately paced. This straightforward and entertaining autobiographical comic is sure to please.—Douglas P. Davey, Halton Hills Public Library, Ontario, Canada

The dental case that Telgemeier documents in this graphic memoir was extreme: a random accident led to front tooth loss when she was 12, and over the next several years, she suffered through surgery, implants, headgear, false teeth, and a rearrangement of her remaining incisors. Accompanying the physical treatment came social rough spots with friends, while puberty delivered another set of curveballs with crushes, maturing bodies, and changing family expectations and judgments. Both adults and kids—including various dental professionals and younger siblings—are vividly and rapidly portrayed, giving quick access to the memoirist’s world. Telgemeier’s storytelling and full-color cartoony images form a story that will cheer and inspire any middle-schooler dealing with orthodontia. At the same time, she shows how her early career choice as an animator took root during this difficult period—offering yet another gentle reminder that things have turned out fine for the author and can for her reader as well. Grades 5-8. --Francisca Goldsmith

this AWESOME BOOK. All the books that she writes
would probably be awesome. So read her books.
IF THEIR WERE 100 STARS I WOULD GIVE IT 100
It look as it was based on regular high school movie the mean girls,the one nice girl (Raina) and of course THE BOYS! But it was not too like that. The mean girls are Raina's friends and PLOT TWIST Raina has to go to a "Ordontitis" I think that's how you spell it...ANYWAY This 100 percent real and 1,000,000,000
good!(PS: If you like this book I mean LOVE this book read this book called "Sisters" also another graphic novel "Drama" but of you like this book you probably won't like "Drama"! ) Goodbye :)
