I Am the Messenger, by Markus Zusak

i-am-the-messengerJessica shares this review:

Winner of the prestigious Printz Award for young adult literature, this story is unlike any other. Nineteen-year-old Ed Kennedy is a nondescript Australian with no ambition and no prospects. All that changes on the day he accidentally thwarts a bank robbery. That’s when the playing cards start arriving in the mail, each with a mysterious instruction scrawled on the side. Realistic characters, a surreal plot, and an unpredictable ending make this a compelling page-turner.
