Charlesbridge Publishing, 2015

“Mullen’s smooth debut, written primarily in dialogue with very short chapters, often feels like a verse novel without the limitations of that form. A solid, interesting novel.”
- - Kirkus Reviews

"In this sensitive portrayal of a budding artist from newcomer Mullen, 14-year-old Liam O'Malley is consumed by the idea of becoming a graffiti writer. A powerful story about the positive effects of change."
- - Publishers Weekly

"A strong debut about the power of art to bring reconciliation."
- - Booklist

"Recommend this powerful story on the impact of fine arts to young artists of all backgrounds."
- - Children's Literature

"Present tense and clipped sentences provide immediacy and make this good for reluctant readers. Recommended."
- - School Library Journal
