it was amazing

1. Graphic Novel
2. This novel is about a young girls life from middle to high school. Her life turns out to change drastically when her two front teeth are knocked out. The next years of her life are spent making visits to the dentist in hopes of fixing the problem. Her self confidence is tried as she goes through trying times along with her friends. The book is very funny and will keep you wanting to read more.
3.a Realism
b.c. This story has such an realistic vibe. Dental work isn't something foreign to children these days. Many children have to get braces to fix the problem with their teeth. This book gives kids such a realistic feel for everyday life occurrences. Apart from the braces, Raina goes through problems with her friends, which is definitely a situation children can relate to.
4. Can be connected to an advisee-advisory program discussing self esteem and true friendships.
