Readers Corner: Savvy
Savvy By Ingrid Law
For years and years, the Beaumont family has hidden away their magical secret. They each possess a “savvy” or a special supernatural power that awakens when they turn thirteen. Grandpa Bomba moves mountains, her older brothers create hurricanes and spark electricity . . . and now it’s time for Mibs’s big day.
As if they didn’t have enough to deal with, the family gets scary news two days before Mibs’s birthday: Poppa has been in a terrible accident. Mibs is on a mission to get to the hospital and prove that her new power can save her dad. So she sneaks onto a salesman’s bus . . . only to find the bus heading in the opposite direction. Suddenly Mibs finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will force her to make sense of growing up-and of other people, who might also have a few secrets hidden just beneath the surface.
Savvy is a great novel for your kids to read, as well as a read aloud if they aren’t quite old enough to read on their own. It’s unique storyline and fun loving characters will keep the whole family entertained!
