Savvy

June 18, 2008 at 4:41 pm (book review, books) (, , )

In Savvy, by Ingrid Law , Mibs is about to turn 13 and come into her savvy. Savvies are extra talents that her family has. Some are fun , some are simple, and some ( like power over electricity ) are dangerous. Two days before her birthday , Mibs’ father is in a terrible accident. Mom and the oldest brother head down to see him, but Mibs is hopeful that she can help her father with her Savvy. So , on her birthday Mibs, her siblings, and some friends stow away on a pink bus and try to get to her father.

I can’t remember where I came across this book or why I decided to put it on hold. I’m glad I did. It was funny, touching, and felt very real. This was a book for tweens that I couldn’t put down. I risked crying at the lunch table at work, because I couldn’t put it down. ( yes, I did cry, but no sobs) . Good book – and I keep talking about it.
