Cath Crowley is an amazingly talented writer. She turns ordinary words into something magical. And she has done it again with her newest book, Graffiti Moon. I was so excited for this book I was going crazy. When I sat down to read it, I could barley take my eyes away from the pages. Just like her book A Little Wanting Song (which was my #2 book of the year last year), she has introduced me to characters that I could spend hours reading about them doing nothing.

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.

I sincerely hope you check this one out along with Wanting Song, which I don't doubt will have it's own post on here sometime in the future because as much as I loved Graffiti Moon, it still has hold of a special place in my heart. Also, I hope that I can finally learn how to spell graffiti properly now that I have typed it so many times on this post. (Is it two t's and one i, or two i's and one t, or two t's and two i's or just one t and one i?)

Find out more about Cath Crowley and her books on goodreads HERE.

Also if reading this book sparks an interest in graffiti art, I give both my thumbs up for the movie Exit Through the Gift Shop. Watching it will make you cooler for sure, and who doesn't want to be a little bit cooler?
