Heartbeat

I read Sharon Creech's recent and excellent book Heartbeat a few days ago. I also liked The Wanderer from a few years ago. I liked Walk Two Moons, but not quite as much. I highly recommend Heartbeat if you enjoy children's fiction.

Written in free verse, this book is quick to read. Annie is a young girl who is working through some changes in her life. It makes an interesting contrast to Reviving Ophelia to see the effects of some choices she makes.
