My Book Boyfriend- Leo/Poet

Check out the intro post here!

A while back, I read and reviewed Cath Crowley's Graffiti Moon which I LOVED.
And I may or may not have fallen in love with each and every character..... so I've done a previous post on one character, Ed, but Leo also stole a bit of my heart too so it's only fair that I share his awesomeness with you guys!

"Leopold Green"

  • lives with his gran
  • his previous relationship with a girl named Emma ended really badly, and made him hesitant to start a new relationships
  • is a graffiti artist nicknamed "Poet"

"Leo's screaming good-looking, that's for sure. Five fingers to the power of ten. Tall, with a shaved head, soft eyes, and a tattoo."

His hand moves across the wall, signing our name. he always writes them the same way. His, then mine, in a font he calls Phantasm.

Remember Love
Love doesn't make the world go round
Sex makes it spin for a second or two
If you're lucky
So do chips, sausage rolls, and girls in short skirts
Lays its fingers on your heart
And holds it
Remember that
When the next girl smiles

Favorite line from a poem?
         there's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out
         -Charles Bukowski

"I was writing poetry. I owe Malcolm because I want to write poetry. You got attacked in the park for poetry." It's like once Leo starts saying poetry, he can't stop. "Mainly I work with free verse. I did a haiku last week though. 'I am in deep trouble / I owe lots and lots of cash / Malcolm will kill me.'"

"The general consensus seems to be that we're losers," I say.
"Well, we're not. Can you believe no one's offered to help is?"
"It's eighty-six degrees, and the city's going crazy. Would you help two guys push a pink van?"
"Yeah," he says, "I would."
"Yeah, you would," I agree. "You're a good guy, Leo."


  1. I loved Graffiti Moon it's one of my favourite Aussie YA books. I fell in love with Shadow and Poet too:)

  2. I think I liked Shadow a bit more than Poet, but both boys were so swooooooony! I loved their friendship! And Leo's humor was the best.

  3. Oh, I keep meaning to read this book all this time! This book sounds amazing, and I need to have more Australian YA in my shelf. Leo... *le dreamy sigh* Such a lovely post, Joie! <3
