This book Smile is about a young girl named Raina who had to wear braces. It all started when she went to a scout meeting and she knocked out her two front teeth when she was running and fell down. She then had to go to the orthodontist.
The orthodontist checked her teeth and said that her two front teeth had been pushed backwards, further into her gums and she said that she looked like a vampire. Raina felt scared because she was getting braces and thought that she would look like a nerd and she also had to wear two fake front teeth. She has friends but they were so mean that they should not be called friends so when she started growing up she found new friends that treated her equally. In the end she found out that she was worrying about her looks more than focusing on her interest. This taught Raina a big lesson in life .
