Meet the Plain Janes--teenage artist activists on a mission to wake up their sleepy suburban town, perfect for fans of This One Summer 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. Includes the original two installments of the cult classic graphic novel The Plain Janes -- The Plain Janes and Janes In Love --plus a never-before-seen third story, Janes Attack Back . And it gets even better: In the final book, each part will be printed in its own distinct color, because there's nothing plain about these Janes.
