Smile is about a young girl and her adventures through maturing in middle school and high school. The book begins with the main character losing her two front teeth after tripping as she was running. She deals with the different struggles of maturity and puberty all while missing her two front teeth in the sixth grade. The book progresses to explain many other dental ordeals that she goes through, and all the life events that take place during this time in her life.

I love this book because it is very relatable for anyone who knows about the struggles of growing up. This book is very encouraging as is details the ups and downs of puberty and gives great insight into how to deal with these problems while also feeling hopelessly awkward dealing with constant dental procedures. I love that this book is written in a comic book style as it makes it a very easy and fun read.

This book could be used to teach a lesson around the struggles that everyone feels as they are going through puberty. During this time, a lot of adolescents feel isolated and abnormal, and this book shows how it is possible to make it through that time and be happy with what you have. ( )

This story has limited words, but no limit on the story line. This story follows the life of a girl as she goes through middle and high school with confidence issues and dental issues as well. As it reaches the end of the story, someone tells the girl to just smile and that becomes her life motto.

I thought that this story is a great representation of the genre of Graphic Novels. The story line was engaging and easy to follow through the representation on the story through the pictures. I would highly recommend that teachers recommend this story to their students and help with confidence issues, that everyone obtains.

An activity that I would do with this story is a book report that includes the students to create their own short graphic story about what they are insecure about. ( )

Middle school is a rough time in everyone's lives, however for the main character in this book she has an added problem. When she was younger she got in an accident that caused her to lose her front two teeth. I would recommend this book for students in middle school or upper elementary. This would be a great book if you are focusing on bullying or teaching children that they can survive the tough times of life. ( )
