Summary: 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 is changing, just like the apple Annie's been assigned to draw a hundred times.

Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech masterfully weaves this story about a young girl beginning to understand the many rhythms of life and how she fits within them.

I think that this is a great book. It shows the emotion of a 12-year-old girl in the form of a poem. This was a wonderful book, and it had a nice flow to it. I hope that whoever reads it enjoys it as much as I did.

I liked this book a lot because not only is it by one of my FAVE authors, but it's about finding yourself. The main character does this by running. Overall, a pretty good book (kinda short though)!
