Graffiti Moon - Cath Crowley
Published by Pan Macmillan
Australian Release - August 1st, 2010
Ed thought he was in love with Lucy, until she broke his nose.
Dylan loves Daisy, but throwing eggs at her probably wasn't the best way to show it. Jazz and Leo are slowly encircling each other.
An intense and exhilarating 24 hours in the lives of four teenagers on the verge: of adulthood, of HSC, of finding out just who they are, and who they want to be.
A lyrical new YA novel from the award-winning author of Chasing Charlie Duskin and the Gracie Faltrain series.
Ever since Kate posted a reviewlette of this title and said "it tasted a little bit like nick and norah's infinite playlist, but with graffiti and a melbourne setting", I have been eagerly awaiting the release of Graffiti Moon. It sounds very much my kind of YA.
Girl Saves Boy - Steph Bowe
Published by Text Publishing
Australian Release - 30th August, 2010
Isn’t it enough having your very own terminal disease, without your mother dying? Or your father dating your Art teacher?
No wonder Sacha Thomas ends up in the lake that Saturday evening…
But the real question is: how does he end up in love with Jewel Valentine?
With the help of quirky teenage prodigies Little Al and True Grisham, Sacha and Jewel have a crazy adventure, with a little lobster emancipation along the way. But Sacha’s running out of time, and Jewel has secrets of her own.
Girl Saves Boy is a hugely talented debut novel, funny and sad, silly and wise. It’s a story of life, death, love… and garden gnomes.
I'm a huge fan of Steph's blog and having seen her speak at the Emerging Writers Festival this year, I'm really excited to read her debut novel. Not only am I absolutely in love with the cover (which is just gorgeous), Girl Saves Boy sounds quirky and charming. Looking forward to it's release.
