Publisher Comments:

Ellen loves Link and James. Her older brother and his best friend are the only company she ever wants. She knows they fight, but she makes it a policy never to take sides. She loves her brother, the math genius and track star. She is totally, madly in love with James, his face full of long eyelashes and hidden smiles. “When you grow out of it,” James teases her, “you will break my heart.”

Ellen knows shell never outgrow it. Shell always love James just the way shell always love Link. Then someone at school asks if Link and James might be in love with each other. A simple question.

Link refuses to discuss it. James refuses to stay friends with a boy so full of secrets. Ellens parents want Link to keep his secrets to himself, but Ellen wants to know who her brother really is. When is curiosity a betrayal? And if James says he loves her, isnt that just another way of saying he still loves Link?

My Heartbeat is a fast, furious story in which a quirky triangle learns to change its shape and Ellen, at least, learns the limits of what you can ever know about whom you love.

Synopsis:

Garret Freymann-Weyr's Printz Honor winner and classic of LGBTQ literature about a quirky love triangle that learns to change its shape, the family pressures surrounding "coming out," and the boundless nature of love, celebrates ten years in print in its first Graphia paperback edition.

When I began to read this book, I found it hard to put down.My Heartbeat is one of the greatest books I have ever read.The story to me is an attention grabber,it's something you don't want to put down until you're finished.I told my friend about it and she read it,mentioned it to someone else and now a lot of our friends and fellow students have read it.
