I am the Messenger. Can't believe it took me so long to get to this. Loved Book Thief so should have known this would become one of my all time favourites too. Beautiful story, beautifully written. Moving and motivating. Great use of voice. 10/10
Printz Award winner, I am the Messenger by Marcus Zusak. Ed Kennedy, a nineteen-year-old Australian with a dead-end job, doesn't have much going for him, or so it seems. Yet after playing a heroic if unlikely role in stopping a bank thief, Ed is chosen by someone--or some thing--to intervene for the good in the lives of a seemingly random group of people, some strangers, and some people he knows quite well.
