10 Moments From Braceface That Changed My Life

Braceface was formative for me because it was such a breath of fresh air! Unlike most other teen girl shows, Sharon wasn’t really trying to be popular or get cool points. She was just living her life…which happened to include some really crazy stuff happening with her braces and an unusual number of awkward moments. But there was open discussions of periods, there were gay characters and even underage drinking was highlighted. Try finding that on Disney Channel or Nickelodeon in 2001!
