I could relate all too well to this book, given years of dental work and two recently painful oral surgeries. This book tells the story of Raina, who loses her front teeth. She gets a retainer with fake teeth, braces, oral surgery, you name it! Any tween or teen who faces dental work or braces should read this book--this poor girl goes through it all! I am not usually a big fan of graphic novels but this book works well in this format. It has a comic strip feel to it, like "For Better or Worse". I enjoyed this book. It was a cute, quick read. Readers will certainly feel for Raina and her painful journey to two good front teeth.
