Praise for SMILE"An utterly charming graphic memoir of tooth trauma, first crushes and fickle friends, sweetly reminiscent of Judy Blume's work. . . . Irresistible, funny and touching-a must read for all teenage girls." --KIRKUS REVIEWS"A charming addition to the body of young adult literature that focuses on the trials and tribulations of the slightly nerdy girl." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY"It hits home partly because there is nothing else out there like it." --New York Times Book Review

I also loved watching callie and her friends create there show and produce it . The drawings are excellent and the plot is 10 out of 10!!!!!!!
On the night of a big dance something upsets Callie( i dont want to tell you or i might spoil it for you !) . Will callie be able to control her feelings and be able to understand the life of her gay friends and will the show be able to go on despite a disaster in rehearsels?
This is an excellent book that will make young readers more aware of LGBT and should help gay or lesbian people to feel free and happy about being themselves ! I cant wait for the next book Raina Telgemeier writes! :) :) :)
It was also good to read about people's enthusiasm for stage and theatre...,and costumes,of course.Maybe Not the basement though !
The progression of the characters,in life as well as on stage,was great to see.As you would expect,ideas were the mainstay of the book.
Both For the book and In it too.I was really rooting for Callie at the end - such innovation ! The audience loved it too.An excellent performance.
