The Plain Janes by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg

The Plain Janes After Jane lives through a terrifying bomb attack on her beloved Metro City (a thinly disguised New York suffering in the wake of 9/11) she chops off most of her hair, dyes the rest black, and determines not to let fear rule her life. But her parents have other ideas, and move the whole family to the arguably “safer” suburbs. Jane is angry and bored until she discovers three other misfit girls, also named Jane, who agree to be part of her pet project to bring culture to the boring ‘burbs, P.L.A.I.N (People Loving Art in Neighborhoods). But not everything goes as planned, and soon the Janes are being targeted by not only the popular mean girls, but the police well! Fresh, irreverent and funny, The Plain Janes is YA author Cecil Castellucci’s (Boy Proof) first GN for DC Comic’s new MINX imprint, aimed at teenage girls.
