This is a story about a girl bullied by her friends because of... well, because she wore braces. I think that Raina is a true inspiration of how to stand up for yourself. To people who read it: follow what Raina did if you happen to have the same problem.

the character's name is the same name of the author because "smile" is a true story of what happened to the author
