Summer has been very exciting for the children, what with camp and bowling and swimming. As a result, no one had a book to present yesterday. Apologies for the delay. However, today was a rainy one, so Abigail was able to find the time to write about a book that she's been reading. So, without further ado, I leave you to Abby who will tell you all about Smile, by Raina Telgemeier. It's a book that made an impression on her, having just had her braces taken off.
Here's what Abigail says the book is about.
This story is about a girl named Raina who knocked out her two front teeth. Raina had to go to the orthodontist to get braces. It took months to get her teeth straightened. One day there was an earthquake and the power went off for about four hours. They said that the Bay Bridge had collapsed. Soon they had their Valentine's party at school. Later, Raina tried out for the basketball team, but she found out that she did not make the team.
Soon Raina stepped up to high school. She made new friends in high school and finally took her braces off. Raina went to the sophomore hop and danced with her friends. Then when she and her friends were having their picture taken, the photographer said smile and Raina's smile was finally straight.
What did Abigail like best about the book?
I really liked the part where the Bay Bridge collapsed, because that was cool.
Was there anything about the book that Abigail didn't like?
I didn't like the part where Raina knocks out her teeth, because that was bad.
So, how did Abigail rate Smile by Raina Telgemeier?
She gave it five out of five dolphins.
