Hello! Here is my review for Savvy by Ingrid Law. Sorry it is a day late (I need to be better at that), and I hope you enjoy it! Don’t forget to check out the polls page!
Mibs Beaumont is about to turn 13. For normal people, it means that you are officially a teenager. For a member of the Beaumont family, it means that you are about to get your savvy, a special power which shows itself on your 13th birthday. Mibs’ Grandpa Bomba can move mountains, her brother Rocket can create electricity or make huge power outages with a bad temper, and her other brother Fish can create hurricanes. When a car crash involves her father two days before her birthday, Mibs only wants a savvy that can save her dad, who is unconscious at the hospital. After Mama and Rocket leave their home in Kansaska-Nebransas, Mibs can’t take it anymore. So at her birthday party, she hitches a ride on a pink bible bus with Samson her brother, Bobbi and Will Junior; the preacher’s kids. On a urgent journey to get to the hospital, Ingrid Law writes a fantastic story about a girl trying to save her Papa.
I thought this book was incredible! It was written very well, and has a great story line. The cover made me check it out of the library, and I am so glad I did. I think it definitely deserved the Newbery Honor, and Ingrid Law definitely deserves a lot of praise for this amazing story. If you are a fan of adventures and want a good book to read, this book should definitely quench your thirst for a great book. I can NOT wait to read Scumble, another book by Ingrid law that follows someone else in the Beaumont family, as well as other books by her. I definitely have my eye out for more books like this one !
Overall: 9.25 out of 10 XanderStars
