Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley Review

Hardcover, 257 pages
Expected publication: February 14th 2012
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers

Book Description:

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 review:

Warning: This review may contain overused exclamation marks.

I never thought I'd say this but thank you for your overpriced cost but very good service...*smile* because I may have bought this book from Australia to be shipped to the US for 15.45$ + 40.00$ shipping but shux! This book was worth it!

Cath Crowley is now one of my top favorite authors of all time; I was amazed by how she told this story through the minds of 18/19 year old characters...she nailed it! I loved every person in this story! They were true, entertaining, inspiring and unforgettable!

As for the story itself, well, do you ever have those moments when you read a book description these days and you say to yourself "this book is either going to be okay or great"? I had that moment and well, Graffiti Moon was phenomenal! I've been waiting a year and a
half to read this so I also had high expectations and you know what? I'm still going crazy about this story, it has it all; action, romance, adventure, suspense and comedy...I actually laughed out loud a couple of times.

Lastly but most importantly, the language of art is extraordinary and that was themed in the story perfectly.

Easily the best book I've read so far this year.




  1. Sounds so great! I saw the cover the other day and was immediately intrigued. Good to know you liked it so much.

  2. Wasn't this book wonderful?! I absolutely adored it. The characters, the writing style... everything was just awesome. I'll definitely need to re-read it at some point!
