But there in the lunch room at the reject table she finds her tribe: three other girls named Jane.

Book 2:
Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge

Paige Turner has just moved to New York with her family, and she's having some trouble adjusting to the big city. In the pages of her sketchbook, she tries to make sense of her new life, including trying out her secret identity: artist. As she makes friends and starts to explore the city, she slowly brings her secret identity out into the open, a process that is equal parts terrifying and rewarding. (Amazon.com)

Bakuman Vol. 1 by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata

By the creators of Death Note! The mystery behind manga-making revealed! Is becoming a successful manga artist an achievable dream or just one big gamble?

But what exactly does it take to make it in the manga-publishing world?

Still, encouragement from persistent Akito and motivation from his crush push Moritaka to test his limits!
