YA Graphic Novel

Smile (Smile, #1)


By: Raina Telgemeir

Genre: YA graphic novel

Pages: 224

Published: 2010

Read: April 

4 out of 5 stars 

This coming-of-age YA graphic novel is based off of the author’s 6th grade experience when she had to get braces. It is a terrifically illustrated and told in her own voice as a 6th grader.  Smile is definitely the most humorous feel good book I have read in a very long time. Anyone could read this book and truly enjoy it. The story reveals the feelings every girl, and even boys, have during those awkward pre-puberty years of your life.  Telegemeir is also the author of a series of graphic novels based off one of my childhood favorite series, The Babysitter’s Club.  By the end, you will definitely be smiling.
