Messnger by Cara Rose-Brown
Life is good for New York teenagers Beanface and Bailey.
The school year is wrapping up, the weather is great, and summer vacation is just around the corner. But in a flash everything takes a sudden and almost unbelievable turn, forcing the two friends to make major decisions that will affect their lives – and ultimately the lives of millions of others.
As children of technology, today’s young people are looking for something that speaks to them in their language. As children of a global community, they want to feel connected. And as children of a greater whole, they need a book that inspires, empowers and motivates them to live to their true potential.
Messnger is that book. Written entirely in on-line chat language, Messnger tells of two best friends who, through their instant messaging, help each other regain control of their lives. The on-line chat becomes a poignant story that chronicles their struggle to make sense of chaos, to understand the consequences of their actions, and to put their lives in meaningful perspective.
While the language is modern, the message is ageless. Messnger is truly a book for our time.
