Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 
This is book is so relate-able it's painful hahah, Raina is in middle school, just trying to get through it like everyone else. Until one night she has a terrible accident and knocks out her two front teeth! so now she has got to get through school with two front teeth missing! Poor Raina goes through so many procedures, braces, false teeth, retainers, dentures, getting her teeth pulled, medications, you name it! And this even goes on into her high school years! This story is very encouraging because she comes out of the whole thing even stronger, and it made me appreciate my teeth even if I do have a few fillings. Hehe :)
