Riassunto: Includes nine short stories covering such themes as sibling rivalry, friendship, a room of one's own, madness, first love, and lost love.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 Up-- A young man, one of 13 siblings, adjusts to having a room of his own; a boy stops mourning the end of a romance and takes hold of his future; a proud girl sacrifices victory in the school race to push a classmate in a wheelchair. In each of these nine stories, a teen confronts an ordinary situation which has taken on an extraordinary dimension, and grows from it. A skillful craftsman, Sieruta reveals characters through informal dialogue or interior monologue. Powerful images stand out; one boy wears a pair of red women's boots (in "Three O'Clock Midnight"), and the boots become a symbol of independence. Only one entry suffers from contrivance, as "25 Good Reasons for Hating My Brother Todd" counterpoints Todd's callous theft of his younger brother's love interest. Otherwise, these stories reveal poignant moments of self-recognition with the ring of truth. Heartbeats will have the same general appeal as Mazer's Summer Girls, Love Boys (Delacorte, 1982), but for a slightly more sophisticated readership. Many readers will find themselves in these thoughtful contemporary stories. --Carolyn Noah, Worcester Public Library, Mass.
