Savvy by Ingrid Law
jf- Newberry Honor
LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. It was fabulous.
Here's what the back says-- "What if your grandpa moves mountains, one of your brothers causes hurricanes, another creates electricity... and now it's your turn?"
It's Mibs' 13th birthday and she'll be getting her savvy. But all she really wants is to help her Poppa.
So fun, so sweet, very cute. My friend who's out to read all things Newberry thinks it should have been the award winner instead of The Graveyard Book. I don't know, I liked them both. I think Savvy would be better for younger audiences than the other was.
I'm really hoping there will be a sequel. Really really hoping. After all, there are younger siblings who don't have their savvies yet! I want to know what happens with Samson...
