"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. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award. 2005 ALA Notable Recording (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
