Run run run.
That's what twelve-year-old Annie loves to do. When she's barefoot and running, she can hear her heart beating . . .
It's a rhythm that makes sense in a year when everything's shifting: Her mother is pregnant, her grandfather is forgetful, and her best friend, Max, is always moody. Everything is changing, just like the apple Annie's been assigned to draw a hundred times.
Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech masterfully weaves this story about a young girl beginning to understand the many rhythms of life and how she fits within them.

Sharon Creech has written twenty books for young people and is published in over twenty languages. Her books have received awards in both the U.S. and abroad, including the Newbery Medal for Walk Two Moons, the Newbery Honor for The Wanderer, and Great Britain’s Carnegie Medal for Ruby Holler.
Before beginning her writing career, Sharon Creech taught English for fifteen years in England and Switzerland. She and her husband now live in Maine, “lured there by our grandchildren,” Creech says. “Moo was inspired by our mutual love of Maine and by our granddaughter’s involvement in a local 4-H program. We have all been enchanted with the charms of cows.”
At 13, Annie loves to draw, run barefoot, and spend time with her grandfather, who lives with her and is becoming more forgetful. She has a new love, for the baby growing inside her mother. As Annie draws 100 apples for art class, runs without joining track, spends more time with her grandfather, and goes to her mother's birthing classes, she grows with the rhythm of life, one heartbeat at a time. Mandy Siegfried makes this poetry collection a living, glowing story. As the perfect complement to Creech's simple yet elegant writing, Siegfried combines youth with thoughtfulness, emotion, and observation, giving HEARTBEAT the pulse it deserves. J.M.S.
