I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak
This was an amazing book, I loved it. Here is a summary :
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. . . .
Chosen to care, he makes his way through town helping and hurting (when necessary), until only one question remains: Who’s behind Ed’s mission?
I loved this book so much. All of Markus Zusak's books are very well written. When I finished reading this, I didn't want the book to end. The way Markus portrays a message of getting to know and love people is very moving. Like I have already said twice, I loved this book. Next time I can get money this will be the first book I will buy. I recommend this book to anyone who likes or loves to read. I learned some really awesome things from this book and I hope other readers will notice some special things about this book too.
