Wishlist Wednesday: Graffiti Moon

Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
Contemporary, 257 pages
Expected publication: February 14th 2012 
from Knopf Books for Young Readers

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.

The strength of Crowley's A Little Wanting Song, which I reviewed last year (and which made the list of my favorites of 2010!) means that pretty much anything Crowley publishes will go straight on my wishlist.  Crowley captures characters - and my heart* - so beautifully, so even though contemporary books don't often end up being wishlisters for me, this one has a firm place on the list.  I can't wait to meet Lucy, Shadow and Ed.
*pardon the cheesiness of that statement. It was inexcusable. But true.

Anyone else wishing and waiting for this one?  Have you read A Little Wanting Song?  (If not, you should.)
