Smile (by Raina Telgemeier)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Emily, grade 7

I would recommend thsi title because I think it describes the story well.  I really enjoy this book becasue I could relate to Raina.  I had bad teeth but not as bad as hers.  I related to Raina because I know what it's like to have braces.  I think we could both agree that even though it's a pain to go through braces and all the gadgets, it's worth it in the end, because you have a beautiful smile.

Gakuen Alice

Reviewed by JC

Gakuen Alice is a manga about a school for the gifted.  Here students may not contact the outside world.  While the school is a happy place to most, there is more then meets the eye.

A good manga for teens that has a bit of everything.
