Janes in Love – Cecil Castellucci

Janes in loveFour high school girls united by a love of art face the trauma of a Valentine’s Day dance and all that it entails.

You don’t have to be a teenage girl to read and thoroughly enjoy this book. You also don’t need to have read the first book, but it is a very good excuse to.

This is a charming and engaging tale of struggling to find yourself and dealing with just how big the world seems when you are young. It isn’t patronising or cutesy and will speak to part of you that wishes the world were simpler or brighter than it is.

The art is comic style in the best possible way and uses black, white and grey in intelligent and creative methods. With a large cast, a lot of dialogue and an internal monologue the lettering does a great job making things easy to follow.

I hope there will be more to come as this gets a Thumbs Up!
