Product description

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? Winner of the 2003 Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award in Australia, I Am the Messenger is a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists, and love. "From the Hardcover edition."

Review quote

" "The Book Thief "is unsettling and unsentimental, yet ultimately poetic. Its grimness and tragedy run through the reader' s mind like a black-and-white movie, bereft of the colors of life. Zusak may not have lived under Nazi domination, but "The Book Thief "deserves a place on the same shelf with "The Diary of a Young Girl "by Anne Frank and Elie Wiesel' s "Night. "It seems poised to become a classic." -"USA Today" " Zusak doesn' t sugarcoat anything, but he makes his ostensibly gloomy subject bearable the same way Kurt Vonnegut did in "Slaughterhouse-Five": with grim, darkly consoling humor." - "Time Magazine" " Elegant, philosophical and moving...Beautiful and important." - "Kirkus Reviews," Starred " An extraordinary narrative." - "School Library Journal," Starred " Exquisitely written and memorably populated, Zusak's poignant tribute to words, survival, and their curiously inevitable entwinement is a tour de force to be not just read but inhabited." - "The Horn Book Magazine," Starred " One of the most highly anticipated young-adult books in years." - "The Wall Street Journal" "From the Hardcover edition."
