Description

Absolutely amazing and brave of Raina to share her story to help others who might be going through the same thing. School Library Journal, starred review"A compassionate and accessible look at one girl's struggles with anxiety.

Now I just live my life doing my best to survive through the anxiety that does still exist in my brain. 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.Apparently each of Raina’s books are semi-autobiographical, recounting incidents or issues that she dealt with in her own childhood. Their relationship doesn’t improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, something doesn’t seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. As always the art is cute and colorful, and in this installment the author does a deeper, more personal dive into these topics, without dumbing things down for kids.

The figure stands an impressive 750mm in height, a size that allows for extraordinary details and paintwork - not only on Guts himself, but also on the stone paved base and slain apostle - the entire scene that is unfolding around him! Raina just wanted to be a normal girl, but one night after Girl Scouts she trips and falls severely injuring her two front teeth. I found that tidbit really interesting, but I wasn’t quite as smiley when I found out it also works if you reverse the process.While I love the artwork in Raina’s graphic novels this is the first of her Smile series that I’ve actually finished reading. Her accolades include multiple Eisner Awards, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor, a Stonewall Honor, and many Best Of and Notable lists. Both girls feel that the other is unfairly unkind to them, but are able to open up and realize that they aren't so different after all. Highly recommend to readers of all ages; Guts could be especially helpful for kids struggling with anxiety and 'gut' issues - and their parents, caretakers, families, and teachers.
