So, I didn't love this book like a lot of people did. Maybe it's because I read The Book Thief first and loved it so much. Ed, the protagonist, irritated the poop out of me. I'm no one, I'm nothing ... Read full review

Ed Kennedy, an underage cabdriver, receives mysterious playing cards in the mail. They give him addresses or people, and that's all the information they give him. He then has to find out what the problem that person is having, and then fix it. Not one of Zusak's best, but still a good read. TD
