Bruce Brooks writes beautifully...just amazingly beautifully. What Hearts is a linked series of stories about a boy named Asa, who's moved seven times in three years. The last story--where the title comes from--slayed me as much as any great short story ever has. Also see Brooks's The Moves Make the Man, another brilliant read.
