Graffiti Moon

By: Cath Crowley

BOOK TALK

High school graduation. One night. A mission. Find Shadow, the mysterious graffiti artist whose work resonates with recent grad, and glass blower Lucy Dervish. She’s sure they’re soul mates, but so far her attempts to discover his true identity have failed. But not tonight. When she and best friend Jazz hook up with former classmates Ed and Leo at a post-graduation party, success seems possible. Leo and Ed claim to know Shadow and Poet, the literary companion to the graffiti genius, and promise to help the girls find these mystery men. Problem is, Lucy and Ed’s history is not good. On one ill-fated date years ago, she broke his nose. But the chance to finally meet Shadow proves too much, and Lucy agrees to the adventures following Ed through the city’s art-filled secrets.  Little does she know that what she’s about to discover has been right in front of her all–night.
