Yippee for Cath Crowley!

So I was going through my daily ritual this morning of reading The Age whilst drinking my delicious chamomile tea and lo and behold there was an article on the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards 2011 and down the bottom of the article they mentioned that Victoria’s very own Cath Crowley won the Ethel Turner Prize for Young People's Literature for Graffiti Moon, congratulations Cath!

Here’s what the judges had to say about Graffiti Moon:

Graffiti Moon, by Cath Crowley, and published by Pan Macmillan, is set in contemporary suburbia, and focuses on one memorable and action-packed night in the lives of three teenage friends. It is narrated from the distinctly different perspectives of Lucy, a dreamer who has just finished year 12; Ed, a graffiti artist; and Leo, a poet.

Lucy and Ed, the two apparently oppositional central characters, share their everyday joys and anxieties as well as their innermost thoughts and dreams, while Leo's poems are woven into their narratives. Lucy is obsessed with meeting the elusive Shadow whose graffiti art is everywhere. Ed, who is grieving for a dear friend and desperate to escape his stereotypes, promises to help her find him. Their passion for art inevitably changes their first impressions of each other. In evocative prose, Crowley skillfully constructs a fast-paced story that will readily appeal to young adult readers.

Well that just makes me want to read the book even more, luckily I already own a signed copy I just have to search for it in my huge TBR pile. For those of you itching to know more about the book there are some really great reviews in the book blogosphere from …
