This is a pretty quick read as it is in graphic novel format. This is for the mother/daughter book club that I am in. My daughter hasn't started this one yet, but I am anxious for her to start. This is a true story about the author's expierence with what she calls "dental drama". The book spans from her 12th birthday into her high school years. The dental issues are just the backdrop in what is a book about accepting yourself, standing up for yourself, self image, friendships, and learning to endure the hardships of life. All these things I want my daughter to read about because Telgemeier handles the situations positively. Can't wait to discuss it with my daughter.
