Title
The Plain Janes
Author
Cecil Castellucci
Review
I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this graphic novel. I like the artwork. I like how the story paid tribute to art, even its feeble attempt to give voice to all the plain Janes in the world. However, the more I think about it, the more it reminds me of the movie version of John Green's Paper Towns - which I wasn't fond of. It's one of those books where, after I finished reading it, I found myself asking what was the point of it all. The message was lost to me.

Review
Good book. But it's not as good as the other books in the House of Winslow series. I prefer the ones that are set in years previous.
Title
Highly Illogical Behavior
Author
John Corey Whaley
Review
By most people's standards, Solomon was a pretty weird kid... He had impossibly weird eating habits, refusing to eat anything green, without exception, and having a substantial fear of coconut.

Sixteen-year-old Solomon Reed is agoraphobic. He used to go to school like everybody else but an incident involving a fountain, a pair of boxers, and a group of students and teachers changed it all. After the incident, Sol - as he preferred to be called - stopped going outside altogether. He hadn't left his house in three years and decided to keep things that way.

Until seventeen-year-old Lisa Praytor came along.

Lisa is your typical straight-A student who could juggle home, school, and extracurricular activities without breaking a sweat. She had high hopes for herself and was determined to leave boring Upland to pursue bigger, bolder adventures - even if it meant leaving her boyfriend, Clark, behind.

Lisa's goal: Get into the psychology program at Woodlawn University. Her ticket: Solomon Reed. She would "fix" him, then she would write her personal experience with mental illness for her admissions essay at Woodlawn.

Does the end justify the means?

Told in the alternating perspectives of Sol and Lisa, Highly Illogical Behavior explores the struggles and coping mechanisms of an agoraphobic, our desire to "fix" others, people's perception of mental illness, and our need to connect with and "disconnect" from the world.

If Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and Finding Audrey had a baby, it would be this book. Highly Illogical Behavior is not as laugh-out-loud funny as the other two but it definitely has its own voice and charm.
