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.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 07, 2005 –  "Creech returns to the free-verse form she employed so successfully in Love That Dog for this insightful exploration of life's beginning and ending and the joys to be encountered on the journey," wrote PW in a starred review. Ages 8-12.

Great book

This is a great book to read. I have read a lot of books by Sharon Creech and love them all. This book talks about the life of a young girl and what she goes through each day. I recommend it to all.


This is so good this book make my heartbeat!

Best poetry novel ever

It is a great book. It is loving, funny , and relatable. I really enjoyed this book. I wished it would never end. If you are needing or wanting a poetry book that is not easy but not hard this is prefect for you. The grade range I suggest this book for is third grade through fifth grade. I could relate to this book in many ways some ways are art, running, and having a really great friend. I would read this over and over again. I love the book and hope who ever reads it will love it as much as I did. A easy project after you read the book is to memorize a poem in the book and at least eight line long. That is why it is the best poetry novel ever.
