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?

A relatable narrative that is a reminder of the literal pains of growing up. An excellent choice for kids (and perhaps even adults) suffering from anxiety and related health issues.

Guts is a 2019 American graphic novel written by Raina Telgemeier, who is also known for her works Smile and Sisters. It was in development for about two years. The book dramatizes her struggles to overcome her fears and anxieties about bathroom issues, such as contracting the stomach flu or needing to move her bowels urgently. I enjoyed reading this book because it talks a lot about fear and anxiety along with friend trouble. I would recommend this to teens 13 and up. I like how Raina describes her life in graphic novels! It is an amazing book that tells about her true feelings. Rating: 4/5 @PrettyKitty of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Complaint: Man, I'm the 4th hold on this book, and for a couple days I've noticed that I'm not getting any further in line, I know that the person who is reading the book has the right to take their time while reading it, but still, it has been a long time since I put this hold and I am still not getting this book.

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.
