    One thought on “Janes in Love”

    1. Highly bored with the concept of vandalizing the town with artwork And that should be a very bad sign, for that s what the main plot is about I m just glad to be done with this and thankful that this only went on for two volumes Wanted to love this, but I found myself being really over it since vol 1.

    2. The first PLAIN JANES book was in my top three books I read in 2007 and Cecil Castellucci is AWESOME in general I m a huge fan of her BEIGE This book definitely wasn t as magical as the first Then again maybe it s just that I hate sequels AND books with flowers or pink on the cover Luckily there wasn t any glitter involved Phew I also love ambiguous endings, so I didn t feel a sequel was needed at all, though I know many folks were begging for it One of the reasons I loved the first book was it [...]

    3. Jane likes Damon The problem is her art project P.L.A.I.N landed him in community service, and now he keeps rebuffing her attempts to get close again First, by going around with another girl, then by declining her invitation to a school dance because he d rather go with a friend Should Jane move on There were too many characters, leaving the rest underdeveloped Like a secret admirer that wasn t really addressed Instead, we get Jane and her five friends moping around because they can t find dates [...]

    4. The Janes are at it again, creating art and beauty on the sly but they finally get caught and must do community service But art cannot be contained and neither can love as several of the Janes seek boyfriends The main Jane must also cope with her mother who s become reclusive after receiving bad news an art grant application process and balancing the attentions of Riswan and Damon The main Jane is wrought with much angst, enough to make me say snap out of it But she is a teenager and that s how [...]

    5. I REALLY like this series A group of high school misfits all named Jane , commit art attacks around their small town They are lead by a mod hipster who recently moved to town to get away from the memories of being part of a bombing in the big city I love the interplay of high school drama, ripped from the headlines, and art And the illustration style is fun too Do read the first before going for this one, though The Plain Janes.

    6. Completely in love with The Plain Janes, I thought this one was good but had difficulty comparing with the beautiful theme and emotional ache of the first book One review mentioned that it seemed cluttered, and I guess I may agree, as I have difficulty remembering the details of the story while the first is still clear in my mind It s still a good read, but definitely start with the first volume and keep your expectations in check.

    7. Rating 5I m in love with this series because it is such a good tale of growing up and wanting to make the world a better place I cannot wait to see what comes after this story.

    8. Fun, engaging book I haven t read the first book and this was a little tough to get into since I was missing the backstory But, the characters revealed themselves and I enjoyed the tale Reasonably realistic characterizations and clean art.

    9. Again, this is a cute top story with some seriousness underneath All the Janes are secretly pining after someone, and a girls ask the guys dance prompts them to act on their feelings Main Jane is crushing on Damon, but afraid to talk to him after his arrest for her art attack Miroslaw formerly John Doe is awake, and he and Jane exchange letters and care packages He inspires Jane to apply for an art grant to make the P.L.A.I.N Janes legit Meanwhile another attack in Metro City scares Jane s mom i [...]

    10. In the continuation of The Plain Janes, a few things are finally tied up, and love seems to make everything a bit confusing We do find out who MainJane s Sleeping Prince is He s John Miroslav from Poland Unfortunately, we find this out by her passing out when his letters are returned, and having her boy friend drive her back to Metro City without asking her parent s permission.Luckily, the nurse in MC has his address in Poland, and gives it to Jane, even after the main nurse refuses to tell her [...]

    11. The P.L.A.I.N Janes feels a little bit too plain While I was reading Janes in Love the sequel to The Plain Janes my overall feeling was shrug This was a solid continuation of the previous story, set only days after the final events in the last graphic novel But for me, this worked against it then for it It s just of the same thing, and although I liked the last book and would recommend it to anyone who s interested, I don t see why this was made as a separate title.I liked that this time aroun [...]

    12. In this sequel to The Plain Janes, which follows almost immediately on the action from the first graphic novel, Valentine s Day is approaching leading the Janes to focus on their relationships or lack thereof Main Jane s sort of crush Damon is doing community service since he got caught at the New Year s art attack Then, after all the Janes but Theater Jane get caught performing their next art attack, main Jane begins to question whether what they re doing is right if it gets everyone in trouble [...]

    13. I m not really sure why I read this Possibly because it was a graphic novel and it was short and I was bored Janes in Love is the sequel to The Plain Janes, in which I was somewhat disappointed This one is also okay The ending makes far sense and is far less abrupt than the first In Janes in Love, the PLAIN Janes continue their guerrilla art campaign which continues to be treated, weirdly, like a terrorist campaign and get entangled with various dudes at school I found the various love subplots [...]

    14. The Janes are back at it A bust at New Year s won t hold them back They know that art saves, and their town needs saving Of course, their hearts need saving too They are all pining away for someone Officer Sanchez is none to pleased about having art vandals on the loose When the Janes get shaken up though they know they have to change their approach Maybe if they can get a grant the town will see them as real artists and start to appreciate the beauty all around them.This was another fun advent [...]

    15. A decent follow up to the first one, which I still think is probably the best Minx title so far This one starts off a month or two after the events of the first volume Valentine s Day is just around the corner, and all the Janes are talking about their love interests Main Jane isn t sure if she wants to be in love art and friendship should be enough, right As she puts it making art is my love letter to the world But she can t shake her feelings for Damon, a boy who took the fall for P.L.A.I.N in [...]

    16. Nice little read that will make you want to dig out the spray painting stencils I have a couple minor complaints Science Jayne is clearly not written by a scientist, the main theme Art as salvation gets pounded in on every single page it s a great theme Let it breathe like a fine wine you can savour, don t keep slamming down shots P But overall it s fun, well drawn, and has a hopefulness for humanity, albeit a kinda emo one Things I especially enjoyed SPOILERS Hey look it s a slightly diverse se [...]

    17. Reviewed by Karin Librarian for TeensReadTooIn this second installment of the PLAIN JANES series, the gang is looking for new ways to spread art around the community.Problems are looming on the horizon, though Valentine s Day is just around the corner, and everyone is looking for a sweetheart for the big dance and pulling their sneak art attacks are getting harder and harder with Officer Sanchez always on the lookout.Jane still maintains correspondence with Miroslaw from the first book From one [...]

    18. A graphic novel about teen girls fighting the establishment, cultural expectations, and finding love in a way that doesn t let the boy s attention become their only focus SIGN ME UP.I love the Plain Janes series, and strongly recommend it to anyone who likes graphic novels, is a female, likes females, or generally likes good writing.In this installment of the series, the girls are back to their art loving ways, and Main Jane finds herself falling for a local boy after her sleeping beauty wakes u [...]

    19. The little spark of magic that you witnessed in the first Janes book is gone The first one dealt with some genuinely good kids who just wanted to make their town a little interesting, so they formed a gang of artists who did artsy things The one real flaw in the first book was that these independent young women let a young man take the rap for their crimes This time aroundeeshuh was kinda like Sex and the City 2, or the sequel to Romancing the Stone, or the sequel to Basic Instinctor any other [...]

    20. I got this over the weekend and was really excited when I saw it I had no business really liking the the 1st book, other than it being a good story with believable characters, but i enjoyed it a lot.This one seemed rushed in a way The Plain Janes was not Maybe there was just too much going on for the limits of a minx book From hearing her talk, I know Cecil Castellucci wants this to be a 4 book series, but maybe 5 books would have been better.Main Jane is still the most developed character and r [...]

    21. side note why does the cover of the online ed have Jane w blue hair, but my physical book have Jane w red hair I was really disappointing by this book I read the 1st one a long time ago and really liked it Al the characters were cool and the plot was interesting This book is weird There were scenes I really didn t understand like when Jayne made the pheromones and many scenes with diologue, but no interaction all the characters said some thing about the topic, but they didn t really interact w e [...]

    23. Synopsis The second volume of the critically acclaimed series finds a group of high school girls each named Jane, who are anything but ordinary, playing cupid Plus P.L.A.I.N People Loving Art In Neighborhoods goes global once the girl gang procures a spot in Metro City Museum of Modern Art contest My Review I love this series and the message within it, and this second volume definitely kept up to par with the first I really enjoy the difference between the Janes and how even with that difference [...]

    24. I love the Minx titles, and I loved P.L.A.I.N Janes Art terrorism by teen girls in suburbia as a method of bonding and healing SIGN ME UP Janes in Love, however, is the nearly lackluster sequel to the PLAIN Janes set around Valentine s Day, built around the romances of the Janes, with most of the neighborhood art loving focus on a single, grant funded, city sanctioned artpark So much of what I loved about the PLAIN Janes is completely gone I still gave it a few stars because there were some brie [...]

    25. Another good entry from Cciel Castellucci, but I really didn t enjoy it as much as the first Maybe that s just me, but something got lost between books 1 and 2 this is not to say that Janes in Love is not good, or is not a fantastic example of what is possible when an author writes a graphic novel with female leads, without clearly angling for female readers It is a good novel, just not great The story picks up soon after The Plain Janes ends, with Jane and her friends spreading art around their [...]

    26. I m not really sure why I even read this book because I totally did not care for the first one I guess I thought this story might pick up where the other one left off and offer some closure Well, this story was even worse than the first one and I found myself not caring for any of the characters or their plights of love The illustrations were okay, but I was annoyed with how stereotypical the characters were The ending was lame and I wondered why I had wasted my time I would not recommend this [...]

    27. Not as good as The Plain Janes but still very good.I love Cecil s writing In such a time condensed format we really see what s going on with Jane and follow along on her journey.I love that Cecil doesn t talk down to the audience and presents people in all their brokenness and wonderfulness ok, may not be a word, but you know what I m saying The artwork is great, again Cecil and Jim make a great team.I only wish there were in this series.Great graphic novel

    28. While I enjoyed this one, the first was definitely better I really have to credit Castellucci for, while there is certainly a happy ending, not everything turns out exactly like one would assume from the beginning of the graphic novel.The characters are all pretty much the same not a lot of growth here, but Jane s parents are highlighted much than the previous volume and play a key role.Overall a decent read that should please fans of the first one You do need to read The Plain Janes first tho [...]
