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?

i love all her books they are mostly true and are amazing and very encouraging

Oh, how I love this book. It's actually the only graphic novel that I've truly enjoyed. I have a friend who is an emetaphobe, and I have dealt with similar issues so Guts is super relatable, my only issue is that everything seemed to be resolved so quickly and nicely. Either way, what an amazing book.

I like how Telgemeier weaves her own childhood experiences into her stories. I also appreciate how, in the end, we are left to conclude that we are more alike than different. A funny read that also models the need for empathy in society.

Guts is another story about Raina which aligns with her previous two books about her life, Smile, and Sisters. Guts follows Raina's life at school, Raina's problems with her fear of vomit, and her anxiety. Raina's stomach problems, and her stomach problems and fear of vomit end up getting her a fear of food, and thinking too much about what she eats and if it could make her sick.
