Review: I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak


Ed Kennedy has literally nothing going for him. He is 19, drives a taxi cab, lives in a ramshackle house with his dog the Doorman, and is hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey. In other words, he has no plans for his future. His life has been nothing but ordinary and he hasn’t done anything to make his situation better. Every day is the same in Ed’s life until he is witness to a bank robbery and helps to catch the culprit. Not long after, he mysteriously receives a playing card in the mail.
