Read full description of the books:
graphic novel binge read, part 2: This Is Already Going Badly
this book is so strange??? all the characters are so flat and everything just happens really fast and without explanation. it is not believable at all (like, LMK where 4 high school girls got hundreds of garden gnomes). we follow a sporty girl, a rebel, an actress and the smart one - so literally just operating off of the characterization granted by tropes. later they're joined by the token gay friend (i luv me some fetishized homosexuality) and the reformed, apologetic cheerleader (who just pages earlier was saying totally realistic stuff like "i don't care about art!!! i want to shop!!!). tropes on tropes on tropes.
and then it just ENDS. weird occurrences like Main Jane's pen-pal-ship with a comatose John Doe and her will-they-won't-they with a guy who says he just sees her as a friend get NO RESOLUTION. neither does their weird unrealistic group.
also all the characters are crazy skinny, often with disproportionately large heads & it reminded me of reading an artsy graphic novel take of the lives of Bratz dolls.
bottom line: this was not for me.
