Lucy wants to meet a graffiti artist named Shadow. She sees his artwork throughout the city, and has had a few near glimpses. At the end of senior year Lucy, with the help from a boy named Ed, goes throughout the city hoping to find and meet Shadow.

The book is told in Lucy and Ed’s point of view. I love how the author will go back in time a bit when switching characters POV. It let’s you see how both are feeling during the same conversation. I was not able to put this book down, and read it in one day. This book made me laugh, made me sad, and made me happy. I can’t wait to read more books by Crowley.
