Guts is a great graphic novel continuing from the two other books Raina Telgemeier has written in the series (Smile,
and Sisters). This book is about the hardships of growing up, but also problems that you and I face all the time, such as bullies, best friends moving to a different town and annoying siblings. I personally think this book was amazing. It isn’t that long, so I was able to read it in a half-hour. I really enjoy Raina Telgemeier’s books. I’ve read all of them! I think Raina Telgemeier did a great job writing about the challenges about growing up without getting into too much detail where kids would feel uncomfortable. I also like how Raina writes from what she went through as a kid and a teenager. That makes me relate to the story, and enjoy it more. After reading this book I would give it a ⅘! I hope you take some time to read Guts because you won’t regret it!
