And despite all thes “For a while, for as long as you’re looking at it, that painting is the world and you get to be in it. I would definitely want to chat with her about all the awesome paintings and pieces of art out there. The last day of the school year is upon them, and she and her I was very lucky to have been able to grab the early copy of this beautiful book. But my favorite characters would have to go out to Ed and Leo. He’s out there somewhere–spraying color, spraying birds and blue sky on the night–and Lucy knows a guy who paints like Shadow is someone she could fall for.
Our customer reviews Graffiti Moon is one of those books that really needs to be aborbed properly; you hear the words, and let them sink in for their full affect until you’re completely wrapped up in this dreamlike contemporary story. I barely finished the third chapter and already I could tell what was going to happen, and yet Ed feels like Lucy is living in the clouds and thinks to have a little fun with a chase and taking her around to see his works, then leaving her while he and Poet take a risky job that may or may not land them in jail.
Ed tells Lucy he knows where to find Shadow and Poet and then the whole gang goes to find them. The brooding romance between Lucy and Ed held me captivated throughout the entire read. The writing, although beautiful, is much more elaborate than what I was expecting from a young-adult novel so it threw me off at first.

I’ve never read her works before now but I am getting as many books as I can find of Cath Crowley’s. Okay, I am not sure if this sounds weird or not, but I have a secret fascination with graffiti art.

Graffiti Moon : Cath Crowley :
I love it when an author realises the importance of a brilliant supporting cast. I thought Graffiti Moon perfectly captured the moment where the breathless exhilaration of youth and possibility collides with “real world” gravity establishing its weight. Post was not sent – check your email addresses! I absolutely fell in love with every single one of these characters!
I think that I should add that this book also contains a lot of art references. Such a neat little detail that really worked. It was more fun to imagine love in abstract rather than experience the messy, frightening reality of getting to actually know and care for a real, flawed person.
Humour, anticipation, and romance: I am sure I won’t be able to do it justice. This time I tried the audio version and it was wonderful!

Lucy was obnoxious and Ed was passive. The truth is better.
But she’s been searching for Shadow for awhile now and it seems she misses him by mere minutes every single time. The sad thing was that he had enough air in mono small space to last him a lifetime. Well, admittedly, the interactions between Lucy and Ed are pretty adorable even if they prefer not to be in the same room as each other.
We see these kids struggle through real life problems – financial dilemmas, marital issues and death are all a part of this well rounded tale.
It made me want to be there with them, hanging out and exploring the city at night ccath search of amazing graffiti. Always hug the characters.

But in all seriousness, the cuteness is NOT a bad thing. Well, for the same reason you should! The US edition also has two new poems by Leo, which is a nice bonus.
