A unique book aimed at 11-16 year olds, Messenger is written entirely in the language of chat room text, complete with abbreviations and `spellingmistyakes' that give it extra authenticity. Chapters are interwoven with MySpace-style bulletin pages for each of the characters.
The book charts the lives and conversations of five teens, set against a backdrop of teenage angst, relationships, exams and family break-ups. As the problems of each character deepens, a mysterious new character -`Messenger'- starts to appear in their conversations and subtly helps to heal their wounds.
