Raina lost her two front teeth in a ascendant. She tripped and fell after her Girl Scout meeting. Her mom rushed her to the dentist and they put a cast on the teeth to hold them in place while the heal. When they took off the cast the teeth were not even with the other teeth. This was because the bone on top of the teeth was broken so that the teeth healed in one place. Raina felt really weird with braces on. Later on in the book Raina realized that her friend weren't that great of friends and stoped handing out with them. At the end of the book was really hart warming, she fond herself real friends and smiled, (without braces)!!!
