When Raina wakes up with a tummy ache, it's no real cause for alarm. After all, her mother had one too. Maybe it was something they ate, or just a virus.
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. However, it soon becomes clear that Raina's tummy trouble isn't going away. What's more, it seems connected to her worries about food, school, and changing friendships. What's going on?
Raina Telgemeier once again brings readers a thoughtful, charming, and funny true story about growing up and gathering the courage to face — and conquer — fears.
