The Plain Janes - by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg
This is a great graphic novel, aimed mainly at teens (due to relationship content), but readable for tweens as well. Great illustrations and a fun plot combine with spunky, believable characters to make this book shine. It's short, thought-provoking, and realistic. Read this if you love art, if you've ever felt lonely or like you don't fit in, or if you've ever been the victim of a terrorist bombing and fallen in love with an unconscious artist whose name you don't know. Right, I guess you'd better just read it.
