From the Trade Paperback edition.
By the author of the #1 New York Times
bestseller The Book Thief, this is a cryptic journey
filled with laughter, fists, and love.
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.
