Summary (via 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 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.
I’ve heard amazing things about this book, so I gave it a go during #ContemporaryAThon. I’m so glad I did. At the beginning I wasn’t too sure, but I ended up really enjoying this one. I’m giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
The narrators were good, although I didn’t like one as much as the others (Poet). I enjoyed the different POVs on this one, although some of the book was just repeating the same things from the next person’s perspective. Regardless, I still liked it a lot.
There’s not a ton of it out in the world, but graffiti artists in books are becoming more common lately. I think this is the third, or fourth, book I’ve read in a few years about them. I definitely can’t wait to try out this author’s other books, especially Words in Deep Blue. I’ve heard amazing things about that book as well!
I pretty much liked all the characters who we focused on throughout the book. They all felt real to me…like I could be friends with them. There’s not a ton of romance in this one, but it’s a great read nevertheless. And it’s not long, so you could easily finish it in a day if you wanted to/had the time.
