Likes/Dislikes Review: Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

Graffiti Moon
Author:  Cath Crowley
Publisher:  Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date:  February 14th 2012

From Goodreads:

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 tell hers 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.



Shadow is a great complex character. 

Ed and Shadow being the same person...awesome.

Halfway point the story picks up to something kind of fabulous.

Love that Shadow is a graffiti artist and his best friend is a poet.  

There is some good honest deep moments about life and shifting into adult hood for the characters.


The ending was lackluster.

Lucy is seriously boring.

The first half is tedious.

In Summary:

I don't understand all the gushing, really.  Graffiti Moon is a decent good read.  It doesn't warrant screaming off mountain tops for me.
