Have you been lonely? First, Raina falls and loses her two front teeth. Second, Raina graduates from middle school. Third, Raina makes a poster for the sophomore hop.
I have a few connections to Smile. First people don’t hang out with me a lot. I used to get bullied and I go to the dentist like Raina. My favorite part is when Raina stands up for herself. I like that part because Raina did not give up. It almost feels as if there is hope for kids who are bullied. I know that every year in school is a fresh start!
I would recommend Smile to my sister, Mya because she is just like Raina. She has earrings. I recommend Smile to my grandma because she had braces and she went to the dentist a lot like Raina. I would recommend Smile to my sister Jasmin because she used to go high school and she has braces. I would recommend Smile my mother Kim because when she went to high school she went to the dentist a lot like Raina. I would recommend Smile my brother Corey because it is a book about a girl getting bullied. I would recommend Smile to my dad Charles because he had a earthquake. I would recommend Smile to children who like books that have a bad situation. I would recommend Smile to people who like long chapter books.
