Here's a little about the book, which features amazing art by Jim Rugg:
When Jane is forced to move from the cool confines of Metro City to Suburbia, she thinks her life is over. But there in the lunch room at the reject table she finds her tribe: three other girls named Jane. Main Jane encourages them to form a secret art gang and paint the town P.L.A.I.N. - People Loving Art In Neighborhoods. But can art attacks really save the hell that is high school?
And the buzz...
"This graphic novel for girls feels like a teen movie and teaches young women the joy of being original." - USA Today on THE PLAIN JANES, Best Graphic Novels of 2007
"Castellucci clearly knows what goes on in the lives in many teens." - School Library Journal
"Castellucci gives voice to a memorable teenage narrator." - Publishers Weekly starred review
