Salida Tween Book Club

Thursday, Aug. 23, 4:00 pm
Designed for ages 9-12. Join us to discuss your favorite books and participate in fun games and activities. This month’s book club selection is the graphic novel Smile by Raina Telgemeier. Please contact the library to reserve your copy at 209-543-7353.

Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after Girl Scouts she trips and falls, severely injuring her two front teeth. What follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, surgery, embarrassing headgear, and even a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's still more to deal with: a major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not so friendly.
