The Plain Janes

Title: The Plain Janes
Author: Cecil Castellucci
Genre: Graphic Novel
Page Count: 176
Why I read it: graphic novel challenge
Grade: C

When transfer student Jane is forced to move from the 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?

My review:
I always find it hard to review graphic novels.  Especially shorter ones, because there's just not a whole lot to say.  There's not a lot of story there most of the time.  This one wasn't very exciting.  I wasn't really awed by the story, and at times I thought it was even a little silly.  The artwork was black and white, and it was also okay.

This probably isn't one I'd recommend, unless you really like graphic novels.
