What's your Savvy?

This work is completely engrossing! I was sneaking it around town just to finish. The flow of the adventure, the realness of the characters and the heart of the writing were key to the success of this piece of literature. Mibs is growing up and about to discover her savvy. Savvy in her family may mean something wild like moving mountains or gentle like baking a perfect cake. While this book looks at one family in particular, I couldn't help but wonder about my own savvy. I believe most readers will wonder about their hidden greatness and savvy.

Before the big day when Mibs finds her savvy, her father is in a horrible car accident. Her family is heartbroken. She and a gang of others go on a hysterical adventure to help her Poppa. On the adventure, she finds her savvy and much about growing up. This is a wonderful story for kids at that in-between age where they just don't feel as if they fit in. It has a wonderful realness to it in the midst of so much magic. I would highly recommend it!

My son is 10 years old and he took this book off of the shelf in his Middle School library. I believe he said he "thought the cover looked cool" and that he heard it was a really good book.

My mother read some of it to him & then he began reading some of it but began to struggle at some large words or hard-to-pronounce words he has never seen before.

I will have to keep this book to the side until next year or the following. It seems like it may turn out to be interesting but it didn't catch my attention right off the bat.

    Good book

    I got this book when B&N was offering a free download, but I didn't read it till much later. It was pretty good, good coming of age story, nice plot, I want to see a part two though.

    Running Away?

    This book is perfect if you want your child to stow away on the next motorized vehicle. This book would be a fun read for 3rd graders howevere they may get confused with the concept of the talking arms (read the book to find out).

    Sweet, but not engaging

    This was a cute story, but I wasn't pulled into it like I'd hoped. To me, it read to me like a dream appears, gently touching on things but never really coming into full focus. It's geared for a younger age group, and they will no doubt enjoy it, but as an adult I wasn't gripped.
