I Am the Messenger

Another excellent book by Zusak. Ed embarks on a series of missions as random as a toss of dice: sometimes daredevil, sometimes heartwarmingly safe. (from review)

The Deep Zone: A Novel

by

Gripping indeed. A deadly disease worse than Ebola has a grip on the military and into the civilian area. Where did it come from? How can it be cured? A trip into the deepest cave for something called moonmilk. But there are people trying to stop them, they don't want a cure until they get all the money they can from the drug they have that is slowing this disease down but not stopping it. I didn't want to put it down. Lots of twists and turns.

Wonderful story. Rose can taste her mother's emotions she's feeling as she mixes her tenth birthday cake. It is awful. She can even determine the places where the ingredients came from and how the workers feel. rose's brother has some kind of 'talent' that she come to know about later on. I really liked this book.
