Description
protect the diamonds survive the clubs dig deep through the spades feel the hearts   Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.   That's when the first ace arrives in the mail.   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? A 2005 Michael L. Printz Honor Book and recipient of five starred reviews,I Am the Messengeris a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists, and love.
