From 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 was worried about this book. *Spoiler Alert*

At first, I didn't like how Lucy and Shadow meet too soon. It made me see the ending flash before my eyes - it was like a bad chick flick. Thank God it didn't happen. It was so much better. The writing was beautiful and the ending unexpected. I'm glad everything turned out the way it did. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters. I liked how they had problems, but they didn't bemoan them. It really was a wonderful book. I can't wait to buy my own copy of this one. You should too! Thank you NetGalley and Random House!

(I labeled this "All Teens." Some really sensitive parents might have a problem with it, but I didn't think it was bad at all.)
