Cute fantasy read for middle schoolers about a boy from an unusual magical family who has to learn to get control of his unique magic power (or "savvy") when he gains it at age 13. He destroys things like clocks and motorcycles by inadvertently magically deconstructing them. His extended family is experiencing trouble with a local "Mr. Potter" style banker character and might lose their ranch, and the plot revolves around this. Not as touching as the author's prior book Savvy, which takes place some 12 or so years earlier than the events of this book, but it's still a solid story.
