Savvy by Ingrid Law, Teen Pick Review by Kathryn T.
A Newbery Honor Book! And the first review from new Kids Pick reviewer Kathryn T!
Thirteen is a big age for anyone. You’re finally entering the dreaded and longed for mysterious teenage society. Whether you like it or not, big changes are around the corner. But for Mibs Beaumont, thirteen represents much more than just a rite of passage into the frightening land of adolescents. Thirteen is the age that everyone in her family discovers their Savvy, A.K.A, their super amazing skill. She’s been looking forward to this day ever since she learned that her family isn’t quite like everyone else’s.
But then on the eve of that so very important day, disaster strikes. Suddenly, learning what makes her special doesn’t seem so important, especially when she and her brothers are catapulted onto a journey that will change everything.
Filled with new friends, super powers, hilarious alliterations and similes, new love, adventure, and a girl who figures out that maybe growing isn’t so scary after all, this book is a quick, satisfying read that will fulfill tween girls everywhere.
