Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
Senior year and graduation is over. Daisy, Lucy and Jazz want a little adventure and fun. Lucy thinks that it will come in the shape of the mural artist known as “Shadow”; if only she can find him. Jazz wouldn’t mind finding his partner “Poet.” Daisy just wants to forget about her boyfriend who stupidly egged her after school. Instead they wind up hanging out with Ed, Leo and Dylan (Daisy’s dumb boyfriend). Told in alternating chapters by Ed and Lucy a story unfolds of loneliness, longing, fear and unanswered questions – and it all happens in one night. The characters are smart and funny as well as realistic and honest.
