The Messenger by Markus Zusak (5 stars)

Ed Kennedy (Just Ed) is as ordinary a boy as you can get.  He’s 19, lives in a shack with a 17yo dog, The Doorman, and a taxi driver. One spontaneous heroic act in catching a bank robber changed his life. He began receiving mysterious instructions to help others in the neighbourhood, each with their own unique problems / issues and therefore require Ed’s own ingenuity to ‘fix’ their problems.
 
I really enjoyed that it kept me constantly engaged whilst being a very easy book to read.  The message at the end is crystal clear that I think everybody should read this book. Just because you’re an ordinary person, it doesn’t mean that you can’t help to make the world a better place to live in.
