I loved this book! What an idea! A person is chosen to do things for others. It can be something as simple as buying someone as ice cream cone or as intense and holding a gun to someone's head. How to help various people that you've never met before. This book, really left me thinking how we can do our small part to make this a better world. Definitely worth reading! Ed Kennedy, is your average 19 year old kid, until he is given this strange new assignement from a mysterious source. Ed will never be the same after this experience, and neither will you upon reading it!

Angie We just finished reading this for one of my book clubs:

What do you think so far? I really enjoyed this book. I like how the author uses cards... and did you notice the order in which Ed was given the cars?


Kathy I'm really enjoying this so far. I haven't noticed anything about the order they are arriving. I know that Ed says something. He was expecting Hearts but then got spades. But I didn't notice anything beyond that. I am hoping that if there is something to it, I will get the relevance soon.


Becky Kathy, I loved this book! What did you think of the end? (Feel free to PM me with any spoilers!) ;)
