Janes in Love by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg

Jane Beckles is my kind of girl. She uses art to fight fear and ignorance. Jane's move from the big city to a small town happens in the first book, The P.L.A.I.N. Janes. She makes friends with three other girls named Jane (plus one gay guy) at her new school and together they carry out secret acts of street art. In this sequel, love is in the air. High school love life is not all roses and chocolates, of course. Jane Beckles has bigger worries than who she will ask to the next dance. Is art worth getting arrested for? Where will she find funding for art supplies? ... And will her mother get over her fear of leaving the house?
