Running from difficulties at home, Frances finds herself spending her summer at her aunt’s house. Her vacation is disturbed when she meets a strange man named Peter. Peter claims to be a messenger and knows that Frances is one too. With her frequent blackouts and strange pictures, Frances finds herself intrigued by Peter to learn more about herself. But as she learns about being a messenger, it is something she never asked for because her pencil holds the power of life or death.

The Messengers, by Edward Hogan, is a book like no other. The concept behind being a messenger is unique and captivating, making the reader turn each page quickly anxious to find out what happens next. One of the advantages of the book is that Peter does not come off as a complete love interest to Frances as she is still an independent thinker. By spending time together, Frances begins to like him, but her responsibility as a messenger comes first. I definitely would recommend this book to anyone- any gender, any age- because it is so different. I found myself picking up the book and finishing it in the same day because I could not put it down.
