Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Book Ever!!! Mississippi also known as Mibs is about to discover her savvy, a magical power that the Beaumont’s family has. Her eldest brother, Rocket, has the power to control electricity and can let out electric sparks from his hand. Her other brother, Fish, has the power to control the weather, especially create water storms. When the Beaumont kids turn thirteen they get homeschooled so they can control their savvy also called scumbling. Days before Mibs birthday, her father got injured in a twelve- car accident on the highway and was taken to the Salina Hope Hospital where he ended up in coma. When Mibs finds out about her savvy, all that she thought about was how to get to poppa. Mibs, Fish, Samson, and the minister’s two kids run away. SAVVY is a story about adventure, meeting new people. Trying to control savvies, and also about love and romance. If you are interested in reading a very exciting and fun book I would recommend this book for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Change This book was all about change. Accepting it. Mibs was going through a lot of that throughout the book. There was the making of friends even though she was always made fun of. There was a potential lover which was an entirely new concept for her. And there was the accident with her father that pretty much caused all odf these afore-mentioned changes. The biggest change of all though, was the gaining of her power, her savvy. This book would help people having to deal with change in their lives and assure them that a little change is alright once in a while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-Told For most people, turning thirteen is just turning thirteen. Sure, you've become a teenager but, still, it shouldn't be that big of a deal. But it is in Mibs' family. When her oldest brother, Rocket, turned 13, he caused a blackout. Of the entire town. And, Fish, her other brother, caused a hurricane on his 13th birthday. Because, in Mibs' family, on their thirteenth birthday, they get a savvy. A certain kind of know-how. Just like, Rocket has an electrical savvy and Fish, a weather savvy. But, then, the day before Mibs birthday her dad is in a terrible accident. And he might die. And, then, on her way to save her father, she, along with her two brothers and the preacher's kids, jumps on a bus. The only problem-it's going the wrong way. I was drawn to this book because of the title, Savvy. And the concept of the savvies did not disappoint. However, the novel was more about Mibs and her family relationships then the savvy so I admit the first time around, I skimmed the book for sections about savvies. After that, I went back and read the whole book and was able to appreciate how well Ingrid Law delved into Mibs' relationships. Ingrid Law proceeded to put in some loveable characters such as good ol' Larry (the bus driver), Will Junior (one of the preacher's kids) and Samson (her brother). Anyway, Mibs made an excellent narrator and besides herdadsdyingwhat'smysavvygoingtobe Mibs had realistic thirteen-year old problems-problems which the 9-12 year old crowd will find easy to relate to (although it you're older than that, definitely do not write it off-I really enjoyed it). She's a bit impulsive at times but naturally that made for a better read. I wouldn't only recommend this book to fantasy readers but also to those who like realistic fiction. Final Verdict: Despite not being much about savvies, Ingrid Law makes this novel worth reading because of her motley array of characters and Mibs' storytelling.
