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.
At first, this was a bit confusing: Why is Ed doing all this random stuff? But it quickly became a warm-and-fuzzy, feel good story. I wish I had the opportunity to help people like that. I loved The Book Thief, and I love this one. It was random, it was funny, it was amazing.
