Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
“Let me make it in time. Let me meet Shadow. The guy who paints in the dark. Paints birds trapped on brick walls and people lost in ghost forests. Paints guys with grass growing from their hearts and girls with buzzing lawn mowers.”
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.
What I Liked:
Cath Crowley is a new author for me. I have never read any of her books before so I didn’t really know what to expect. I was not disappointed in her writing at all. I loved all the characters in her book. I especially love Ed and Lucy. They both had a lot of chemistry and a lot in common when they really started talking. Ed and Lucy were both artists in their own way. They both expressed themselves through different areas of art. Ed has a really tough life and art was his way of expressing himself. He never thought he was good enough. Lucy was constantly worried about her parents and was searching for Shadow who she thought was wonderful and she really could fall in love with. Both characters learn a lot in the book about each other. I can’t wait to read more of Cath Crowley’s books. They are very interesting and good and are about real life issues.
What I Didn’t Like:
I would have liked to see Ed and Lucy’s romance develop more.
Any reader who likes romance.
You don’t like romance.
