  1. Loved it!
    And you know what? After I read SMILE, I made my first dentist appointment in 7 years (note: waiting 7 years between visits is not the wisest thing).

  2. I really enjoyed her Baby Sitters Club graphic novels, and I’m looking forward to this one!

  3. this book was the best book i read in a month after i was done i gave it to my friend to reead and she loved it soooo much she gave it to her sister to read who also LOVED the book “smile”
