I am The Messenger by Zusak

This is from the author of The Book Thief.  Totally different style book, but still a very good read.  I think I will definitely have to look at reading a few others by this author.  It didn't go where I expected (which I like), and it makes you think.  I can't really put it into words.  I gave it a 4 out of 5 on my goodreads.  Add it to your list and let me know your thoughts.

Summary from goodreads.com:
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?
