Summary
Meet the Plain Janes--artist activists on a mission to wake up their sleepy suburban town. This cult classic graphic novel is perfect for fans of The LumberJanes and Awkward .

When artsy misfit Jane Beckles is forced to leave her beloved city life behind for the boring suburb of Kent Waters, she thinks her life is over. But then she finds where she belongs: at the reject table in the cafeteria, along with fellow misfits Brain Jayne, Theater Jane, and sporty Polly Jane. United by only two things-a shared name and frustration with the adults around them--the girls form a secret club dedicated to fighting suburban apathy with guerrilla works of art scattered around their small town.

But for Main Jane, the group is more than simple teenaged rebellion; it's an act of survival. She's determined not to let fear rule her life like it does her parents' and neighbors' lives. Armed with her sketchbook and a mission of resistance, the PLAIN Janes are out to prove that passion, bravery, and a group of great friends can save anyone from the hell that is high school.

With each installment printed in its own distinct color, this volume includes the original two stories-- The Plain Janes and Janes in Love --plus a never-before-seen third story, Janes Attack Back . The Janes are back, and better than ever.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This three-part graphic novel collects Castellucci's previously published cult classic The PLAIN Janes and its sequel Janes in Love, along with a new, third story called Janes Attack Back. In all, a group of girls share the same first name, yet their personalities are as different as can be. We have the artist, the athlete, the academic, and the thespian, but despite their differences, the Janes bond through civil disobedience at night, they sneak out and decorate the town in sculptures, notes, and other artwork, bringing beauty and discourse to their humdrum neighborhood. Meanwhile, they face the growing pains of friendship, romance, and independence. Rugg's simple linework allows him to call attention to the characters' distinct styles and expressions, and the panels depicting the fruits of the Janes' labor bring whimsy to otherwise realistic scenes, such as when they hang puppets along lampposts or when they reveal their floral decorations at a school dance. Teenagers looking for a relatable story will enjoy this series and may be inspired to bring creativity to their own lives, too. Final colors not seen.--Biz Hyzy Copyright 2020 Booklist"
