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 Thoughts: 

I have had this audiobook in my Ipod for quite a while and have continually passed it up. Why? I have no idea, but decided that I was not going to pass it up again. Let me tell you that I truly am kicking myself for not having read it sooner.

GRAFFITI MOON was a well paced, great read occurs during a short expanse of time. The premise is engaging and intriguing with characters that are funny and memorable to witness.  I was totally on board with Lucy's quest to find Shadow, the elusive graffiti artist whom she felt connected to.  Here enters Ed the boy who personally knows shadow and will help her find him. You can just see the plot twisting as these two become involved on this quest.  Their moments together are some of my favorite parts along with the poetry that is written by POET, the literary half of Shadow's artistic renderings. 

Cath Crowely has done a great job of creating a story that is fun and exciting with the excellent bits of romance that kept me captivated. I adored the witty dialogue between characters and the poetry that was simply brilliant. If you have not read/listened to this novel then you surely must because it is worth the time spent reading it.
