by Raina Telgemeier. New York, NY: Scholastic Graphix, 2010  


An autobiographical memoir told with humor and honesty about the tumultuous challenges and perils of Raina’s teen years: from the trauma of falling one night on her way home from a Girl Scout meeting severely injuring her front teeth, to dealing with boys, earthquakes and the true meaning of friendship. This is a modern classic as it was pivotal in the history of kids' graphic novels.
