Heartbeat: Heartbeat (Audio) - Sharon Creech, Mandy Siegfried This book (which I have read before, even if this time I listened to tapes) is written in verse and is from the view point of a young girl growing up and how her life is changing. From her mother's pregnancy to her moody friend to her grandfather who is slowly forgetting everything he once new.

This a cute book from the footnotes (which are funnier/cuter if you are actual read the book) to the girl's voice (the tapes). But it does have some flaws, at points she uses words that are too "adult" and they don't take place while she is expanding her vocab. Those small flaws just throw me out of the story and lose it a 5 star rating.
