BK’s Book-Marks – Smile

I have something to share with you.

I recently read Smile by Raina Telgemeier.  Here are the answers to Mom’s four questions.

What is the book about?

A 6th grader named Raina fell and severely injured her two top front teeth. She had to go through braces, headgear, and a retainer with fake teeth. It goes from middle school to high school. She also has to deal with boy drama, a huge earthquake, and friends who are not the best of friends. Can she finally smile with all of this drama going on? Read Smile to find out!

What is your favorite part?

I liked her reaction when she got pantsed in the courtyard. It was her standing up for herself and this is a big life lesson.

Anything in the book that parents should know about? 

Hey parents! In one part they play spin the bottle, which is gross! So I would advise that no one under 8 should read it. P.S. 8-year olds can read it.

Why do you think other kids should read this book?

I like this book because it relates to me.   I have had problems similar to her like I have braces, some not-so-nice friends and I learned that I should try new things.  For example, I am trying to learn how to play the ukelele.
