Listen, red light, yellow light, green light, go, Crazy little woman in a one man show

Pages: 247 | Release Date: May 15, 2007

"Graffiti Girl" by Kelly Parra ~~ Angel is an artist or at least that is her big dream in life. But when the results of a school competition turn out that she's not on the winning committee, she gets mad and feels hurt .... not thinking her style is good enough. Then Migel -- leader of a graffiti crew called Reyes Del Norte -- shows her his world of art, turf wars, and crew life. She just can't leave behind who she used to be though, and now she's torn between two worlds and two guys. With both worlds and guys being so different she'll have to decide what path will be the one for her ... and just possibly find herself in the process.

2.5 out of 5 stars. It's a teen romp that has bold characters but falls a little flat during the plot (at least for me). So slow-paced that I had to force myself to finish the book. Good ending but it could have been better.


For more information on this book or any of Kelly's other books, then please check out her website.

** Title is from the song Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard **

  1. Oh, too bad the ending wasn't better. I've had this on my wishlist for a long time but haven't gotten a chance to buy it yet. I'll have to think twice before buying it now, though-thanks to your review. Great review!
