A true story from Raina Telgemeier, the #1 New York Times bestselling,
multiple award-winning author of Smile, Sisters, Drama,
Raina wakes up one night with a terrible upset stomach. Her mom has
one, too, so it’s probably just a bug. Raina eventually returns
to school, where she’s dealing with the usual highs and lows: friends,
not-friends, and classmates who think the school year is
just one long gross-out session. It soon becomes clear that Raina’s
tummy trouble isn’t going away… and it coincides with her
worries about food, school, and changing friendships. What’s going
Raina Telgemeier once again brings us a thoughtful, charming,
and funny true story about growing up and gathering the courage
to face – and conquer – her fears.
