!Tropes in Raina's works include:

* ACupAngst: Played with in ''Smile''. When Raina's mother says they need to start discussing her wearing a bra, the recently turned thirteen year old Raina drowns her out with a long "Mommmmmm."
* BadVibrations: Used in ''Smile'' with Raina's depiction of the 1989 Loma Preita earthquake, which took place during the events of the story.
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Invoked when her little sister Amara starts growing up, but even before then, the sisters often argued and fought.
* ImagineSpot: Several times in ''Smile'' when Raina worries about what her braces/dental work will look like. Played with at the end, when she ''thinks'' her teeth look bad prior to her final cosmetic procedure, but none of her friends notice anything.
* MamaBear: When Raina goes to a periodontist, the man does a deep cleaning (under the gums) without waiting for the novocaine to kick in, and also ''without asking her mother''. Leaving the office, Raina sees her severely bruised and bloody gums in a mirror, then faints from shock and pain. Her ordinarily laid-back mother absolutely ''loses her shit'' and rips the doctor a new one, screaming at him about doing that kind of procedure on a minor without parental permission and causing said minor to pass out. His attempt to quiet her (so his other patients won't hear) only enrages her further.
* OppositesAttract: Raina's parents. Her mom is a hippie GranolaGirl who picks 'meaningful' names for her children ("Raina" because she was born while it was raining, "Amara" because it means "immortal" in Sanskrit and "love" in Latin, and "Will" because it was God's will that she have a son). Her dad, on the other hand, is a fairly straight-laced computer programmer who works a 9-to-5 job.
* RageBreakingPoint: In the middle of her dental work ordeal, Raina puts up with a lot of teasing from her friends. Until, that is, some of them sneak up and jerk her skirt down in front of dozens of other students. Their defense that she was wearing tights underneath it (and thus obviously nothing was shown) cuts no ice with a furious Raina, who lambastes them for both that and the constant digs at her braces, and she stops hanging around with them immediately.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Raina is ''terrified'' of snakes, and does not react well when Amara gets a pet corn snake for her birthday one year.
