I Am the Messenger

Markus Zusak
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? This book is a 2005 Michael L. Printz Honor Book and recipient of five starred reviews.

I just don't know what to say about this one. I think it was good, but I didn't really enjoy it because I was always trying to figure out what kind of book it is/is trying to be. Is is for adults, or teens? Is it a mystery, is is paranormal, is it just plain-old-real-world fiction? Is it supposed to be serious or comical? (And on a side note, how is anyone supposed to consider taking it seriously with such a ridiculous cover, which misled me for the first half of the book?)
