Mississippi "Mibs" Beaumont is part of a savvy family. Every Beaumont is given a savvy, a supernatural power, when they turn 13. Over the years, Mibs witnessed her family's awesome savvies, and waited for the day she would turn 13.
Unfortunately, her father gets hurt in a car accident days before her birthday, separating Mibs from her parents temporarily. Also, her party turns out to be a total bust, her savvy is driving her crazy, and she's desperate to travel to Salina, where her father is, and somehow use her savvy to wake him up. And the real story starts when Mibs and her family and friends hitch a ride on a Bible bus to Salina.
I really liked this story. It's all about friendship and family, and I love the different relationships Mibs has with these different characters. Especially with Will and Bobbi. And then there's Lester & Lill <3
For the most part, the characters are believable. They're all pretty different, which I like.
This book was pretty entertaining overall. I'd give it 4 and a half stars out of five! ★ ★ ★ ★ ½ Well. . . Here's Scumble! >>
Ledger Kale turns 13 and expects an awesome savvy just like his cousins, the Beaumonts, have. However, on the day of Fish Beaumont's wedding, he finds out how big of a disaster his savvy is. All he can do is destroy things!
Ledge has to scumble, or control, his savvy before any more chaos ensues. It's trouble enough trying to hide the family secret from reporter wannabe, Sarah Jane Cabot and her dad.
I think I liked this story more than Savvy. I really loved how characters from the first story connected to new characters. Again, I love the relationships Ledge has with the other characters--Sarah Jane, Rocket. I also love Rocket & Winona and Mibs & Will.
I find the whole story completely amazing! Of course, Ingrid Law made some great realistic characters. So to cut it short, I give it 5 stars out of 5! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Everybody's starry-eyed. . .
Now lettuce enjoy Gravity by Coldplay!
