Savvy by Ingrid Law and A Free eBook!!
Mibs Beaumont is about to become a teenager. As if that prospect weren’t scary enough, thirteen is when a Beaumont’s savvy stikes--and with one brother who causes hurricanes and another who creates electricity, her savvy promises to be outrageous…and positively thrilling.
But just before the big day, Poppa is in a terrible accident. Suddenly, Mib’s dreams of X-ray vission disappear: All she wants now is a savvy that will save Poppa. In fact, Mibs is so sure she’ll get that powerful savvy that she sneaks a ride to the hospital abroad a rickety bus--with her siblings and the preacher’s kids in tow. But when the bus starts heading in the wrong direction only one thing is certain: After this extraordinary adventure, not a soul on that bus will ever be the same.
Savvy was an fun and amazing adventure that I didn’t want to end. The premise of this story was unique and really well written. I loved how all of the characters came together and the way the Beaumont family stuck together even when faced with disaster. The family’s Savvy’s were all really unique and I would love to read more about them, hopefully Ingrid Law will consider writing a sequel.
Ingrid Law has written a wonderful story that everyone will enjoy. I can’t wait to read more books by her. I recommend this book to all ages.
