Things About Me!

Hi! my name is Raina Telgemeier I live in San Francisco. I have 2 siblings named Will and Amara. In the beginning of the book I am 12 years old and I am a middle schooler and the book I am in tells about my life until I graduate. I am the protagonist in the story and my old friends who made fun of me, they are the antagonsit. And later on in the story, I have new friends and they are the subordinate people. I just want to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after a girlscouts meeting I trip and fall, I blacked out. I saw bood, my friends asked me if I was ok, but then I descovered mytwo front teeth came out. What follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, surgery, embarrassing headgear, and even a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's still more! A major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not so friendly.
