It takes you along as it follows Lucy and Ed on the last night of high school, but it’s also about their relationship with Ed’s secret alter ego, Shadow, the guy who paints in the dark. It’s funny and heart felt and the whole grafiti is one of the best set-ups I’ve read. While many young adult romances seem to be propagandizing the all-consuming, identity swallowing, love at first glance kind of romance, this book goes so much deeper.
Ed was Shadow, the guy Lucy was so crazy about. I loved the protagonists.
I grarfiti at this painting and think about how everyone has some secret inside, something sleeping like that yellow bird. She studied professional writing and editing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and works as both a freelance writer and a part-time teacher in Melbourne.

I am not very knowledgeable about art, but I did enjoy looking up images of some of the pieces that are mentioned. Cagh whole focus for the evening is to find Shadow, a graffiti artist that does these amazing croeley paintings all over the city.
Beautifully crafted, this novel will show readers life, truth, reality and the world through three pairs of eyes. Ed is Shadow — he dropped out of school because of his dyslexia. These are only short parts that you listen to twice and it didn’t bother me at all. It’s about friendship, and love, and struggle.
Dylan is sort of Daisy’s boyfriend who idea of romance is throwing eggs on her head. This is the kind of book that puts a huge smile on your face.

All of them end up together in a pink van where the truth must come out – whether they like it or not. I also just really loved the idea of the story taking place over one magical night. Apr 21, Catie rated it really liked it Shelves: Also, you got to love a protag that can break a boys nose.
Which is a real bummer. Always hug the characters. Shadow paints and speaks through his work. It didn’t raise any emotions, being so boring at times. The description of every single graffiti sounded so stunning, I wished they were all painted in my town so I could gaze at them on my way home. Have a strong connection to arts in general, various artists and to their preferred working material which could be glass, words or walls and colours.
Moving to the extra beats. The way she described the art in the story I felt like I was standing there looking at it and I wish I was. The story is simple and beautiful. The couples were sweet and loveable, the pacing was fast, there were many Final rating: It’s a little after dawn Also, the noble single mother goes down very well with an American audience. Most of the time, their bond was kind of flat, but I still ended up rooting for them.
And while its his images that first draw our girl in, its his thoughts and hers and Leo’s that pulled me in. It was about friendship, and pink vans, and doing the wrong thing, but still finding redemption in the end. The book skips between both Lucy’s and Ed’s POVs with a dash of Poet’s writing in between that gives a foreshadowing and yet another view of events but it never becomes overcrowded with views or confusing. Hands down, probably the best book I have read so far this year.
I wrote that last April about the Australian edition and it still stands. Too much Pride and Prejudice. I also liked how the author’s writing made my brain run in a thousand directions. I can’t wait till this book hits the shelves!
Review: Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley – Lectito
Graffiti Moon won the first prize in the “Young adult fiction” category. It bothers my brain cells.
One of my favorite of Shadows pieces is of “a heart cracked by earthquake with the words Beyond the Richter scale written underneath. D Even the girls,i liked them all. Hook, line and sinker.
