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 have so much love for this book. I love this even more that all of this happens in ONE NIGHT.
There were so many colors! The main colors mentioned were yellow and blue. Each time they were described I just wanted to paint it and hang it up on my wall. Unfortunately I have no skill in painting. Reading this makes me want to go take an art class just to see them on paper. Everything was so artistic and beautiful and the writing was just raw and deep.
The characters were just amazing. Why do I love all of these characters?
I loved all of their flaws. Their flaws made them real that it hurts to understand what they’re going through. I just love all of those flaws that make them, them.
Lucy's the person that lives in her head and has everything planned She knows exactly what she wants to say and always has something to say. But Ed isn't someone who fits into her plan. Ed is deep, sad, and broken. I have a lot of respect for him for trying to make something out of his rough life.
The story was about Lucy and Ed, but also their friends Leo, Jazz, Dylan, and Daisie. They all start off with their personal issues holding them back, but then they help each other find themselves.
