Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

Graffiti Moon

                             Graffiti Moon


Senior year is over, and Lucy has the perfect way to celebrate: tonight, she's going to find Shadow, the mysterious graffiti artist whose work appears all over the city. 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. Really fall for. Instead, Lucy's stuck at a party with Ed, the guy she's managed to avoid since the most awkward date of her life. But when Ed tells her he knows where to find Shadow, they're suddenly on an all-night search around the city. And what Lucy can't see is the one thing that's right before her eyes.

 (MY THOUGHTS)        5 HEARTS!!!!!
 I love this book! Graffiti Moon is the first book I’ve read about Australian teenagers, but they’re no different from any other of today's teens, except their slang, which I loved. I thank you, Cath Crowley, for this amazing story of these six teenagers on their last night of their twelfth year, and for the word "wanker". Yes I know what it means, but I still love the way it sounds. Crowley has written a beautiful and funny story, with very serious time-to-grow-up moments for three of these six teens. Graffiti Moon is told from Lucy and Ed's (Shadow) POV, which makes this story prefect to see what's going on in their heads. This is a fantastic story with these teens' last night of high school. The only thing that would make this story more fantastic would be if Cath Crowley writes a second book continuing the story of Lucy and Ed going on with their plans of art school, and the love that started with these two. I would love more Cath Crowley’s awesome writing.

Lucy is determined to meet Shadow, the graffiti artist who paints on the city walls. In her mind, this is the perfect guy and the love of her life. The last boy Lucy dated was in her year ten of school, who she thought  was her Mr. Right until he grabs her arse and she in returns breaks his nose on their first date. So Lucy is on a mission to find Shadow on this last night before she’s off to start college. She meets up with her two best friends, Jezz and Daisy, at the coffee shop. Jezz has plans for this last night, too, and it’s to hook-up with the next guy who walks into the coffee shop. And next guy who walks in is Leo, but he’s not alone. Ed and Dylan are with him. This is where the fun begins with these six teens on their celebration night of year twelve.

Graffiti Moon is hilarious, but it’s also very serious with teens making the right choices and with sweet, loving romance. The kind of romance that all us girls dream about having with a guy and not ending up with a wanker (just had to use that word again lol) I highly recommend Graffiti Moon as an awesome read.

  1. I also LOVED this book! I just review it too. I read it all in one night. I loved the different perspectives and I loved Shadow. I understood the characters well and there was such good emotion and laughs too.
