I Am the Messenger Summary & Study Guide
From the author of The Book Thief comes this darkly funny and ultimately uplifting thriller which proves that anyone can be extraordinary. Ed Kennedy is just your less-than-average Joe who is hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey. But after he single-handedly manages to catch a bank robber, he receives a playing card in the mail: the Ace of Diamonds. This is the first message. Four more will follow.
For seventeen years, I forced myself not to have a favorite book. And I get it. Add to Bag. The story of Ed Kennedy, a year-old cab driver, is simple but beautiful. All Ed wanted, other than for his best friend Audrey to love him back, was to be more. And he gets his wish in the form of four playing cards.
