I Am The Messenger
What It's About:
Meet Ed Kennedy—underage cabdriver, pathetic cardplayer, and useless at romance. He lives in a shack with his coffee-addicted dog, the Doorman, and he’s hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery. That’s when the first Ace arrives. That’s when Ed becomes the messenger. . . .
Why we dig it:
Zusak first garnished press and prestige from his internationally best selling novel The Book Thief. I am the Messenger was balances humor and kindness with appropriate amounts of irreverence.
