Synopsis

Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

'We've got at least seven hours to get what we want before the sun comes up.'School 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. Somewhere in the glassy darkness, he's out there, spraying colour, birds and blue sky on the night. And Lucy knows that a guy who paints like Shadow is someone she could fall for - really fall for.The last person Lucy wants to spend this night with is Ed, the guy she's managed to avoid since punching him in the nose on the most awkward date of her life. But when Ed tells Lucy he knows where to find Shadow, the two of them are suddenly on an all-night search to places where Shadow's pieces of heartbreak and escape echo off the city walls. And what Lucy can't see is the one thing that's right before her eyes.

Reviews

A rare gem of a book. I actually stopped reading it to make it last longer! Funny and romantic; the realistic dialogue is one of the novel's many strengths. The novel is like a breath of fresh air; witty, funny, intelligent and the story told by a light but assured hand. Sensitive and utterly realistic of how young people live, it is an absolute must for libraries. * School Librarian * A pacy and action-packed read. The real selling point is Crowley's fabulously lyrical prose, which is an absolute pleasure to read. * Bookbag * Teenage Midsummer Night's Dream of magic, romance and transformation. * Financial Times * Graffiti Moon is so beautifully crafted that the shift between points of view is virtually seamless. Poet's free verse contributions are rather like the tense pauses in great music -- a place for readers to hold their breath and wait, skin tingling with anticipation, for the change in pace, pitch and rhythm. * NSW Association for Gifted and Talented Children * Crowley celebrates friendship, curiosity, and intellectual pursuits and writes funny, sophisticated books that zing with wit and energy... * Anges Nieuwenhuizen, Magpies Volume Twenty-five * A rare gem of a book -- I actually stopped reading it to make it last longer * The School Librarian * This is a heart-stopping romantic adventure, singing with a love of art and language. * Judges

's Literary Awards * A sort of teenage Midsummer Night's Dream of magic, romance and transformation * Financial Times * A wonderful cast here of smart,artistic and romantic young people...a pacy and action-packed read...The real selling point his Crowley's fabulously lyrical prose, which is an absolute pleasure to read * The Bookbag *'
