Daisy and Dylan were outright adorable, Leo and Jazz provided crosley the right amount of conflict, and Lucy and Ed were the heart. Same goes for Leo’s words and I love the reason behind why he needed the money and the fact that he’s a bit scared of his Gran.

Perhaps that’s why they chose to leave that little snippet out of the US edition, which brings me to my next topic. But she’s willing to endure Ed’s company for the night if hanging out with him means finally meeting Shadow.
To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Yet, they are complex characters, well-drawn with their hopes and fears, their strengths and weaknesses, their talents. All okay, some of the things I loved: The story gives nothing new to the genre and is very predictable. This story was so lovely with all the descriptions of art, from Lucy’s glass blowing to Shadows paintings, you felt like you were really seeing catu through your mind’s eye.
It reminds me a bit of John Green or David Levithan, and I think that it will appeal to quite a lot of people. Each are Aussie Book challenge 9 Okay! So Lucy agrees to this night with the promise of finally tracking down the boy of her dreams. He is also brave, sometimes cfowley foolish, but i loved him to bits.
I loved loved the humor, the flirtatious banter and easy fit wit. It really is only for high school readers.
The former on books and literature while the latter on fine arts- glass art, paintings and graffiti combined with poetry. But my favorite characters would have to go out to Ed and Leo.

From the reviews I’ve read, I assumed the book And I am but I’m not and I want to put her on pause and paint a wall where I explain everything.

GRAFFITI MOON by Cath Crowley | Kirkus Reviews
The writing was so beautiful that I graffitk stopping to stare at the words. I like that about art, that what you see is sometimes more about who you are than what’s on the wall. Even the shortest and simplest of exchanges were loaded. The Graffiti Moon crew, despite being a bit older, is composed by such kids. There was a problem adding your email address.
But this is, definitely, definitely, a book that needs your attention. This time I tried the audio version and it was wonderful! I didn’t want it to end. And that brings us to Ed, a boy betrayed by words and saved grwffiti art. View all 10 comments.
She also has an excellent sense of humor and I found myself crying with laughter over some of her passages. Email required Address never made public.
I loved the protagonists. Yes, it’s perfect, believe me. I always wonder if someone will live up to my expectations when I meet them, and for Lucy it’s even more crucial because she’s falling for Shadow.
