5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too, 30 Jan 2007

This review is from: Heartbeat (Paperback)
In this poetic novel by acclaimed author Sharon Creech, Annie, a twelve-year-old girl, is trying to find out who she is. A lot happens in this short one-hundred-and-eighty-page book.

Annie's mother is pregnant, her grandfather is beginning to forget things, and her friend Max is extremely moody. Annie loves to run, and throughout the book there are "thump, thump, thump" lines where she can hear her heart beat in rhythm with her feet, which are running hard. Hence the title of the book.

In Annie's art class, the students are asked to take an apple and draw a picture of it for one hundred days. At the end of the project the students are to turn in one hundred drawings. There are poems in the book devoted to the one apple.

I love Ms. Creech's writing and admire her poetic style. The characters come alive as if you knew each one of them personally. I love reading books like that; they seem so real. HEARBEAT is a simple, fun, fast read.

This is a superb book if you are teaching a poetry module to 10-11 year olds. If they have read 'Walk Two moons' they will enjoy the poetry link.

This review is from: Heartbeat (Paperback)
I gave this to my not totally enthusiastic reader daughter to read at school, and she loved it. She now wants to read more of Sharon Creech.
I loved the way the poetry helps even the least athletic of us understand why this girl runs.
I just with it had a more boy friendly cover as I'm sure my son would have enjoyed reading it, if he'd ever got past the cover.
