The Lovereading4Kids comment
Charming, warm hearted and original, Savvy is a family story with a difference. Mibs (short for Mississippi) is waiting for her thirteenth birthday – the day she’ll get her ‘savvy’ and, through it, discover exactly what her special powers will be. How a family manage their unpredictable other selves makes delightful and funny reading.
The Lovereading comment:
Savvy is a brilliant debut novel that will have 9+ year olds utterly enthralled. However, the quality of the writing is such that teenagers and adults will enjoy it too. So good in fact that I missed by train station on the way home from work. Full of humour and friendship, heart-ache and love it’s sure to set Ingrid Law on the road to success as an author.
Savvy by Ingrid Law
For Mibs Beaumont's family, the day of their thirteenth birthday could be an adventure or a disaster. It's when they get an extra-special talent. But on Mibs' special day, their Poppa lies in a coma in hospital, and she has to reach him. The only way to get there is on the pink Bible bus, so, adventure or disaster, Mibs is getting on that bus.
