Can Laurel escape with her heart before he returns to London and leaves her behind at the end of his month-long reign of terror on her city, or does he end up leaving graffiti on her heart that will never wash off?
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Saw this, and author the author is unfamiliar to me the book appealed, it was only 99p so on the kindle it went....
Its a fun read, light and easy to follow but with some serious thought behind the issues raised.
Laurel, I liked her, she's always the family good girl, seeming to feel she has to make up for her sisters issues.
That does happen in families, there are contrasting children, and it made me wonder what was behind the root of her sisters problems, why did she do it, and did Laurel really need to always be the Good Sister, when inside it gave her grief, affected everything she did.
Her job is City planning, but she's lost that, through no fault of her own and is struggling to find another. She's really resentful of Kaveman, sees his actions as destructive, adding to city crime, desecrating other people's property.
There's an argument she's right, we make kids criminals when they do it, and then make heroes out of others, such as here and the UK artist Banksy. I'm guessing Kaveman is modeled on him, similar controversy exists over his anonymity, over selling of his works for vast sums, and selling prints of his work. From being an avaunt guard renegade he's become Establishment, one of the people who he's been protesting about in his work...kind of weird isn't it?
But then we see the art through Kaveman's eyes, when he's explaining to Laurel just what he sees and how, why he feels his work needs to be done, what he's trying to achieve.
It's not just mindless vandalism but a combination of exposing hypocrisy, unfairness, issues that otherwise get swept under the carpet. It's also teaching people that beauty is everywhere, not just on a canvas or paper, an orderly garden or tidy building.
Beauty exists outside lines and boxes, and we see that for Laurel those boxes are whats controlling her world instead of her controlling it.
Interesting concepts, and I love seeing the reasons people behave in certain ways, and having things set out in a solid romance like this, with real people, genuine problems make for a good story for me. I really enjoyed this novel, and as a UK reader it was a treat too to get a UK main character
Stars: Four, enjoyable and fun read with an interesting sub story.
Book purchase! Yep, get loads of ARCs, have KU, use the kindle free reads and yet still buy books :-)
