Guts is a 2019 American graphic novel written by Raina Telgemeier, who is also known for her works Smile and Sisters.


Guts was in development for about two years. [3]


"'Guts' is dedicated to 'anyone who feels afraid.' For anyone that includes, this book’s warmth, humanity and humor — it ends with a sonorous and well-earned fart — provides a balm more soul-soothing than any pill."

— Scott Stossel, The New York Times[4]

Karen Jensen from Teen Librarian Toolbox said "Far too many of our young people are wrestling with mental health issues and we need to do better for them. Guts is just one of the ways that we can help. And that’s the power of story."[5] Kirkus Reviews said: "With young readers diagnosed with anxiety in ever increasing numbers, this book offers a necessary mirror to many." [6]
