This special boxed set contains Telgemeier's #1 "New York Times"-bestselling
and Eisner award-winning graphic memoir "Smile" and its
Raina wants to be a normal 12-year-old. But when she trips and falls,
severely injuring her two front teeth, she begins a long, frustrating
journey with braces, surgery, hideous headgear and even
a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's
a major earthquake, boy confusion and friends who turn out to
be not so friendly.
Raina can't wait to be a big sister, but once Amara is born she realizes
things won't be quite what she had expected...or hoped. Despite
Amara's cuteness, she is a cranky, grouchy baby and mostly
prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn't improve much
over the years but when a baby brother enters the picture and
their parents' relationship starts to struggle, they realize they
must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.
