The Plain Janes

The Plain Janes The Plain Janes by Cecil Castellucci

I'm not sure if it's true that teen girls that read graphic novels are girls that are on the outskirts of the popularity circle, but this graphic novel, like Skim and Chiggers, is about girls (all named a form of Jane), all from different cliques of the school, who start an underground art rebellion in their town. After the town starts cracking down by enforcing a curfew for all the teens, the whole school starts getting in on the rebellion (including the popular kids)- and isn't that what every teen on the outskirts wants?
