Janes in Love, by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg

This book is the sequel to The Plain Janes, which I read for class and thought was very cute. This one is equally as adorable.

It’s shortly after the great New Year’s Eve shenanigans. The Janes are up to their old art tricks, until they get caught for reals this time and Jane is unsure if this art thing is something she should be doing. But then she finds out that she could be getting a grant for PLAIN to keep going and she makes it her mission to get that grant, even though all those adult types are against her again. Meanwhile, there’s a girls-ask-boys dance that I don’t really care about that’s all fraught with emotion. Blah blah blah.

I liked this book slightly less than I liked the original, mostly because of the relationship business (barf), but I still enjoyed it! The art style is wonderful and the different “art attacks” amuse me. If you want a sweet quick read, grab this book and the one before it.
