A true story from Raina Telgemeier, the #1 New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of Smile , Sisters , Drama , and Ghosts !

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 on?

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.

if you've already read this book i suggest you should try out boy crazy Stacey too.I know there are a lot of holds on this book,but put a hold on this book at your school library and at this library

I love Telgemeier's humor and charm. The book is very relatable and I'm glad that readers can find books like this to get through, although I still prefer Smile overall.

I AM SOOOOOO EXCITED TO READ THE BOOK: Guts! It looks like a good book! I love Raina Telgemeier books! I have the baby-sitter club books! And I also have: Kristy's big day:) I thought the 6th book would be about Mallory Pike! But I guess it's not! Its probably going to be the next baby-sitter club book:)
Can't wait to read more books by Raina Telgemeier!

This book is the 3rd in the series but is technically a prequel seeing as Raina is only 10 in this book whereas she is 13/14 in the other books. the story was more complex than the first to and covered deeper topics. This is a really great book I liked it a lot just don't expect it to be like the first two.

I just read this book. Awesome drawings as usual, great colour scheme. To be honest I found the plot a bit weak, the basic story was Rania got nervous over the word 'vomit' and was just having trouble dealing with stress in middle school, I felt it really did drag on in some parts of the story. But do not be put off by the way plot! This is still a great graphic novel! And it is one you will look forward to reading if your a smile fan!

Another great Raina Telgemeier graphic novel that touches on the anxiety that many kids feel, but don't always know how to express. I think this graphic novel will foster great discussions.
