It’s not flashy, which works against getting award attention.

Kat, so glad to hear it! Love to see kids enjoying great comics.

I have yet to see someone dislike Smile. I have a funny feeling it’s going to make a lot of “Best of 2010″ lists.

I was in 1st grade, though, and it happened during a break in class.

But yeah, Smile! I’m very happy to have read it.

I also liked that Raina is not a perfect heroine (in her book) who does the right thing every time.
