Savvy

Amazon.com Rating:

Thirteen is when a Beaumont's savvy or magical power hits — and with one brother who causes hurricanes and another who creates electricity, Mibs Beaumont is eager to see what she gets. But just before the big day, Poppa is in a terrible accident. And now all Mibs wants is a savvy that will save him.

In fact, Mibs is so sure she'll get a powerful savvy that she sneaks a ride to the hospital on a rickety bus with her sibling and the preacher's kids in tow. After this extraordinary adventure — full of talking tattoos and a kidnapping — not a soul on board will ever be the same. With a wacky and charming cast of characters and a story that's both hilarious and thought-provoking, this imaginative book about finding your voice will resonate with middle grade readers.

The Beaumont family adventures continue in the companion novels Scumble and Switch.

Description

"Initially believing that her savvy is the ability to restore life, Mibs sets her course for Poppa. Joined by her brothers and the local preacher’s kids, she sweet talks her way onto a traveling Bible salesman’s bus. On the journey, however, Mibs realizes her savvy isn’t what she thought, which opens the way for a number of lively adventures both geographic and emotional. Law’s storytelling is rollicking, her language imaginative, and her entire cast of whacky, yet believable characters delightful." — Francisca Goldsmith, Booklist
