Graffiti Moon- Cath Crowley



                So it’s review time again.  I know I’m on a roll but I have a bunch of amazing books to read and review its crazy.  I received this book from Random House Children’s Books on NetGalley.com on my Kindle and just finished reading it.  First the summary curtsey of goodreads.com:


It’s the end of Year 12. Lucy’s looking for Shadow, the graffiti artist everyone talks about.

His work is all over the city, but he is nowhere.

Ed, the last guy she wants to see at the moment, says he knows where to find him. He takes Lucy on an all-night search to places where Shadow’s thoughts about heartbreak and escape echo around the city walls.

But the one thing Lucy can’t see is the one thing that’s right before her eyes.




                I adore this book.  I couldn’t put it down once I started.  Very addictive.  The story takes place in the span of one night and it flowed wonderfully always something going on keeping the reader entertained and intrigued.  The book takes place in Australia, and aside from a couple of phrases and things I didn’t know or understand right away but easily could understand through the rest of the story, it was great.

                The characters are all flushed out and really solid.  I could see them in my mind, see this adventure unfolding before my eyes.  I as a reader felt like I knew these characters and I became invested in them.  The description is beyond my words, they wouldn’t be able to do it justice.  As you can tell by the title there is art involved and the way the art and scenes are described visually is so beautiful and vivid.

                I highly recommend this book.  It was a treasure that I look forward to re-reading again in the future.  This book comes out 2/14/2012 so check it out.  It was a really kick arse book.
