Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after Girl Scouts she trips and falls, severely injuring her two front teeth. What follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, surgery, embarrassing headgear, and even a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's still more to deal with: a major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not so friendly. (from barnesandnoble.com)
This is about a girl who is trying to get her teeth fixed. But she gets so embarrassed. I think the good thing is that this is a very funny and very good read. Yes, [I would recommend this book to another middle schooler because] it gives you advice.
