This story pierces the heart. Vintage Creech. Its richness lies in its sheer simplicity. When I learned that my daughter was expecting her first child, I wondered what it would be like to be a grandparent, and out of those wonderings came Granny Torrelli Makes Soup. After I finished that book, and after my granddaughter was born, I continued the exploration of grandparents—and a new baby in Heartbeat.
It is aimed at children aged 10 and above. Like Love That Dog , the book is written in free verse, which alters according to both the subject and the main character's mood. Twelve-year-old Annie is having a very significant year. Her mother is pregnant, her grandfather is forgetful, her best friend is always moody, and she has a new art assignment-draw an apple each day for one hundred days. She is friends with Max, a mysterious boy that wants to "escape". Heartbeat was nominated for the Carnegie Medal. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
