Graffiti moon
Crowley, Cath
Teen Fiction CROWLEY

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Crowley (A Little Wanting Song) returns with a moving contemporary spin on disguised-identity romances (think You've Got Mail), first published in Australia. The novel is told in the voices of two creative older teenagers-Ed, aka secretive graffiti artist Shadow, and Lucy, a fledgling glass blower-interspersed with the poems of Leo/Poet, Ed's best friend and graffiti partner. Set over the course of one long night, Crowley's story slowly develops the relationship between Ed and Lucy, enemies since a disastrous date two years earlier. Lucy is obsessed with Shadow and his art; she tells Ed, "I just want to meet one guy, one guy, who thinks art is cool." The teens' artistic sensibilities are richly and affectingly expressed; readers will agonize over their obvious compatibility and long for them to recognize each other as soul mates. The beauty and danger of the nocturnal urban landscape is an effective counterpoint to the growing attraction of the sensitive yet bristly pair. Secondary characters-close friends, artistic mentors, and well-meaning parents-are strongly rendered, layering the steadily engrossing story with credible complexity. Ages 14-up.
