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.

Funny, sweet and beautifully depicted, YOU'RE THE KIND OF GIRL I WRITE SONGS ABOUT is a startlingly fresh voice from a very talented new author. Tim is repeating the HSC, but he's more into music than studying. He is juggling playing in a band with handing in assignments and the music is winning. Mandy is taking a year off before she starts uni. Her problem is she doesn't really know what she wants to study, so she's working (sort of) and even by her own admission spends too much watching daytime TV and drinking tea with best friend Alice, with the tea being an excuse for talking - lots. Tim and Mandy meet at a gig. The attraction is immediate, but they are both so shy and self-conscious, but over time they slowly, awkwardly, move toward each, meeting by coincidence, each unsure as to how the other feels. Set in the cafes pubs and dives of Sydney's Inner West YOU'RE THE KIND OF GIRL I WRITE SONGS ABOUT is a ballad to that time of your life when you are trying to work out who you are, what it is you want and what will it take to get you there.

See a scribble or a full mural on the side of a building or subway and most people will turn their heads in disgust. Why? Because most have a misconception of what art is, the different types of art and its history. So the question here is how can one artist, one supporter or maybe a whole community change the perspective of the world about what graffiti is and how it all began. Larger portion of society looks at graffiti as a non-form of art. In this research essay I would like you to open your mind and for you to really take a moment to think quietly to yourself and ask what art is. Graffiti Art is, as Banksy describes, “Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall - it’s wet.” – Banksy, Wall and Piece Or as Cath Crowley, Graffiti Moon “I spray the sky fast. Eyes ahead and behind. Looking for cops. Looking for anyone I don’t want to be here. Paint sails and the things that kick in my head scream from can to brick. See this, see this. See me emptied onto a wall.” Cath Crowley, Graffiti Moon So while you read this research essay keep the question in the back of your mind…Is Graffiti Art?

Winner of the Adelaide Festival Literary Award for Young Adult Fiction, 2012. Over the nine days before her seventeenth birthday, Mim's life turns upside down. In the end, the same things look entirely different. Rule number one: I will not turn out like my mother. Mim knows what she wants, and where she wants to go. Anywhere but home-in a dead suburb and with a mother who won't get off the couch. Her two older brothers are in prison, so now Mim has to retrieve a lost package for her mother. Does this make her a drug runner? She's set herself rules to live by, but she's starting to break them. And she can't seem to find answers to all the new questions: Why is the monster dog Gargoyle hidden in the back shed? Why is the boy she sent Valentines to for years now suddenly a creep? And who is the mysterious girl next door who moans at night? Vikki Wakefield's first young adult novel, All I Ever Wanted, won the 2012 Adelaide Festival Literary Award for Young Adult Fiction, as did her second novel, Friday Brown, in 2014. Friday Brown was also an Honour Book, Children's Book Council of Australia, 2013. Among other awards, it was shortlisted for the prestigious Prime Minister's Awards, 2013. Her new novel, Inbetween Days, will be published in October 2015. Vikki lives in the Adelaide foothills with her family. 'One of the most memorable YA books I've ever read. Original, real, startling and beautiful.' Cath Crowley, author of Graffiti Moon 'One of the best debut novels I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Vikki Wakefield has gifted the Australian Publishing world, and readers of Young Adult Fiction, a superior tale, full to brimming with formidable characters and an exquisite protagonist.' The Book Gryffin 'While it's both a thriller and a gritty romance, for me All I Ever Wanted is first and foremost a sparkling journey into hope. As the story drives toward its surprising conclusion, we're left as stunned as Mim as she discovers "that there are so many ways to tell a person you love them." I loved this book.' Paul Griffin '[An] absorbing young adult novel...Despite the grim setting, the characters are richly and lovingly drawn with smart-mouthed, determined Mim a particular delight. At the core of the book is the idea that things (and people) are not what they seem. It's nothing new as a concept, but it's executed with winningly original style, wit and heart. Think Underbelly meets Hating Alison Ashley.' Big Issue 'Vikki Wakefield's first novel walks the tightrope between fate and human agency. Despair is leavened by shards of hope; this is not Young Adult literature that peddles misery or wallows in a nihilistic fug. Mim is one of those resilient protagonists who still wields a degree of control over her life....Like her protagonist, Wakefield plays with the reader's prejudices. Little by little, the restrictive labels forced on various characters are seen to be products of convenience or carelessness, rather than truth...All I Ever Wanted is a thoughtful and impressive debut, and Wakefield a talent to watch.' Australian Book Review 'A beautifully-written account of one young girl trying to claw her way out of the circumstances into which she was born...It's a story about daring to dream and the transformative power of hope.' Sunday Tasmanian
