After tripping and losing her front teeth, a sixth grader's true story of smile repair - a journey of four years.
This book is a huge favorite with my fifth grade students. Painful in parts, it's also satisfying because there are many things to connect with about adolescence. Fast-paced and full of smiles, no matter what your dental situation might be at any given moment.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
