I went through braces, an expander, retainers, and headgear when I was growing up, but that was all nothing compared to Raina. It was cathartic to read about experiences that were similar to and even worse than my own. I love the artwork and way Raina illustrates concepts as well. I'd give this to anyone who has had any major dental or orthodontic work done or who soon will. Of course anyone looking for a good comic about middle school will enjoy it as well.
