While I am rating this 4 stars, I understand why so many middle schoolers love this book. I never had the opportunity to get braces, so I couldn't relate to the main conflict, but still a great book! ( )

Sweet book. Telgemeier's autobiographical tale of growing up, living through an especially rough go of getting her teeth fixed, and learning to like herself (SO glad when she broke up with those jerk "friends" of hers and met people who appreciated her!) was nicely done in graphic novel form. Great one for kids, and if you like this, definitely try Jimmy Gownley's Amelia Rules series. ( )

Changing my rating from 3 to 4.5! This is a quick and light-hearted read. Would recommend!
