The Plain Janes graphic novel

Have seen this around the web a lot recently so i thought I would check it out. The Plain Janes by Cecil Castellucci and illustrated by Jim Rugg is a graphic novel aimed at teenage girls. Even though that is not me any longer I still rather enjoyed it. I specifically enjoyed the P.L.A.I.N. (People Loveing Art In Neighborhoods) art pieces the 4 Janes created in their town. Though they were known as "art terrorists" it made me really wish that I had taken sculpture in college. Very cute and inspirational. "Art saves."

Thank you for the heads up! Had not heard of this, and there aren't nearly enough graphic novels about cool teenage girls, IMHO. (Well, there is of course Ghost World.) Will check this out soon!
