Smile recounts Telgemeier's dental nightmares and social struggles she endured between the sixth and ninth grades. Even readers who weren't/aren’t forced to wear braces will identify with the author's troubles with friends, feelings for the boy who ignores her, and difficulties figuring out just who she is.
