Smile by Riana Telgemeier

    Riana is a normal eighth grader...until...  *TRIP!* and her teeth are ruined, and bleeding!  Her mother takes her to the orthodontist and, they say some thing that will makes her nervous.  Riana has to have on-again, off-again teeth surgery.  Not to mention the head gear and the retainer with fake teeth! Boy confusion is another thing that she had to deal with.  When she thinks she has friends, it turns out they aren't.  Later on though, she finds two new friends, and they are better than the last ones.  Soon enough, she also finds her artistic voice. I can't tell what happens after that.  You'll have to read the book.

My feelings about the book
    I really liked it, besides maybe one part in it where they showed some gross things.  Other than that, I enjoyed it.  Lots of funny jokes that made me laugh, and parts where it explains things I have done before.  Some times I think it actually describes my life.  Maybe not about the braces.
This is Raina smiling for a photograph.

    I recommend this book to a person who has or had braces.  Maybe you could get a lot of sympathy from this book, because it has a lot MORE events in it than just getting braces.  Not to mention it helps you understand what braces can really do.  Some of the stuff is actually surprising!  Also if your going to get braces it explains some of the things they have to do before you wear them in school.  This book is also for boys, not just girls. 

The Haunted Mask by R.L. Stine

Halloween she can't take it off. To know the ending read the book.  

I think that people who like a short book would like this. People who believe in evil spirits and magic would like this amazing book.

Stanley committing the crime. 
I would recommend this book to anybody who likes adventures because the main characters go on an adventure in the end. My favorite part was the end because it ties it up

In Dork Diaries 2, a girl named Nikki Maxwell writes about her everyday life in her new exclusive private school. She tries to be popular but there is a super mean girl named McKenzie that gets in her way. She goes to a party and something horrible happens, but not to her, to McKenzie.
I would recommend this book to girls ages 8-15. I think it is a very interesting book and you should read the first and third books too.

I would give this book 5 stars. It is a good book if you want something that will keep you busy for at least a couple hours or even a couple days.
