"Where the Community Connects"

YA for Adults Book Club - I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

Young Adult books may be written with teens in mind, but they aren't just for teens. This new book club is for adults who enjoy reading and talking about YA fiction.  

"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?" - GOODREADS
