Ariel Dorfman, Joaquin Dorfman. It is the simmering summer of 2001 in New York City. Heller is the youngest employee of Soft Tidings, a messenger service whose motto is news with a personal touch. At Soft Tidings, a message is not handed over but told to the recipient. Heller prefers his bike to the mandatory Rollerblades, and he gets away with his maniacal bike riding because he is, hands down, the best deliverer of bad news.

This, coupled with the lessons he learns from Salim, leads Heller to reach out to Silvia. Although unusually mature and self-sufficient due to the absence of his do-good parents, Heller has typical insecurities, fears and dreams that are perfectly captured in this hip, urban tale of unlikely friendships.

I read this book a while ago, checked it out from the library and read it in a couple days. I loved it.

The description and even the other reviewer mention the flaws of the setting and how the plot seems unrealistic but in my mind these aren't flaws at all. When I read this book it had a bit of a nonsensical feel to me. Like it wasn't supposed to be completely realistic, it was supposed to be about the people rather than the plot. And the people are great. Heller is one of the best written characters I have read and for a young adult novel I think the characters are much more important than anything else because teens are looking for people to relate to.

As was said in one of the novel descriptions I think this book and it's characters are best for "thoughtful" teens. The story itself is quite interesting and does grab your attention, but the characters and their inner relationships and emotions are what makes the story, so if you're only interested in a story about a young bicyclist that's not what you're going to get. But if you want to read a story filled with characters who are complex and interesting and still so understandable, this is definitely a book you will love.
i was given an advanced copy of this book and i didn't want to read it. i hate 'sports' books. i never even picked this up until after it was already in the library and cataloged and on the shelf. man was i an idiot:)

this book is great! wait, it's better than great:) the characters are amazing (and really, they make this book). every distinct, vivid, realistic, snarky, wonderful person in this story rocked.

heller meets people over and over in manhatten rather conviniently, and the story line is a little on the, shall we say, unrealistic side. however, these flaws are totally easy to overlook when the dialog happens. (besides, when was the last time i saw a movie with a realistic story line???)

absolutely unique.
A praise book to messengers and revolution. Love????
I read this book around the time it came out, so it's been awhile, but I remember really loving it. Interesting premise, good dialogue, good story.
