find the book on

A mysterious graffiti artist, an anatomy-obsessed artist, and a night bus that will bring the two together.

Artist Beatrix Adams knows exactly how she’s spending the summer before her senior year. Determined to follow in Da Vinci’s footsteps, she’s ready to tackle the one thing that will give her an advantage in a museum-sponsored scholarship contest: drawing actual cadavers. But when she tries to sneak her way into the hospital’s Willed Body program and misses the last metro train home, she meets a boy who turns her summer plans upside down.

Jack is charming, wildly attractive . . . and possibly one of San Francisco’s most notorious graffiti artists. On midnight buses and city rooftops, Beatrix begins to see who Jack really is—and tries to uncover what he’s hiding that leaves him so wounded. But will these secrets come back to haunt him? Or will the skeletons in Beatrix’s own family’s closet tear them apart?


1. LOOK IT, WORDS IN THE SHAPE OF A HEART. Y’all know that I’m a huge cover snob, and I am pleased with the simplicity and eye-catching style of this cover. I want to display it on my shelf.

2. “Jack is charming, wildly attractive…” Charming, you say? I am interested. Very interested. *uncontrollable winking*

3. The MC wants to follow Da Vinci’s footsteps. I’m hoping for some amazing art, and a very determined and passionate heroine.

4. The early synopsis promised a steamy romance. A STEAMY ROMANCE.

5. Jenn Bennett is a popular adult author, and I’ve never read one of her works yet. I want to start with this since it’s a bit more tame, and if I enjoy it, I’ll check out her adult books.


What are you waiting on this week?

    1. It did scream Graffiti Moon when I first read the synopsis! Hopefully this is different on the inside, though. (I mean I liked GM, but I wouldn’t want a copy of it!)


  1. I was only MEH about Bennett’s other YA series, but I have to admit that this one looks promising. I’ll be keeping my eye out for your reaction ;) Great pick, Aimee!


  2. What, the main characters are ARTISTS?! Oh, I’m already obsessed! I LOVE books about art and artists, and this one has two artists falling in love, too! Plus, this is a VERY original plot, because street art meets Art with a capital “A”. Last but by no means least, the cover is very cleverly done. What an absolute GEM of a book! I’m beaming over to Goodreads and Amazon to add it! Thanks for the feature!

    Thanks as well for visiting my part of the galaxy and commenting on my blog!! : )


    1. I’m not an artist myself, but I love books that talk about art! :D I’m not sure about the plot being original though, since it sounds a lot like Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley. :)
      No problem, Maria! And thanks for visiting mine as well. ^_^


What's the juice? Spill!
