Not only is this book well written, interesting, and humourous, I found the fact that in explaining what a Savvy was (a special power) that they also included YOU, the general masses: YOU have a Savvy, everyone has something they are really good at, and they just may not be aware of what it is, but it's there, and it will eventually show! What an empowering book for children, ESPECIALLY GIRLS! Wow! On top of it, I really loved that the main character (a female) chose to not get romantically involved, feeling uncomfortable with that decision in her young life, and choosing to wait - what an empowering decision for a young girl to make! None of this comes off as preachy, of course, because the writing is absolutely enchanting!

I really like this book Scumble is okay but Savvy is better

This book grabs your attention and keeps moving. The story is told in a gentle, light-hearted style and is laced with bits of wisdom about having the confidence to be yourself and rejecting the critical words of others that can get stuck in your head. A beautiful book for kids and adults.

Everyone in Mibs' family acquires a power (or savvy) when they turn 13. What will Mibs' savvy be and will she be able to control it?

Great way to delve into your imagination about special powers. This was a novel like no other in the sense that you will "feel" the "sparks" and the "rain" and the "storms" around you as you read. The protagonist and the supporting characters just come to life in your imagination as you journey with them on a very important mission. Find out what happens when you are a Beaumont and your thirteenth birthday comes. *Wonderful leisure time reading.
