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 . . . thump-Thump, thump-Thump. 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 changes over time, just like the apple Annie's been assigned to draw. But as she watches and listens, Annie begins to understand the many rhythms of life, and how she fits within them.

Another great piece of juvenile fiction from Sharon Creech. She uses free verse to great effect, not just as a gimmick, with living, breathing imagery and a real sensitivity to the mind of a twelve-year-old and the difficulties she faces growing up.

This was an AWESOME book! I was kind of surprised that it didnt make me cry though, because most of Sharon Creech's books do. But it was still a good read!
