Great book. I understand why this was on the Newbery list.

Mibs Beaumont is from a unique family. Each member has a special gift, a savvy, that shows itself on their thirteenth birthday. Some of these savvies are quirky and harmless, like Mibs momma (her savvy is perfection), while others can be dangerous to the person and everyone around them. Mibs brothers have each had wild and dangerous savvies- one makes electricity and the other creates hurricanes. Mibs's thirteenth birthday is fast approaching and she wonders what is in store for her. But her savvy takes a backseat when her poppa is seriously injured in an accident. Her mother and brother must be with Poppa in the hospital and the rest of the family is supposed to be looked after by the minister's wife. But when Mibs wakes up on her birthday and her brother's turtle that everyone thought was dead wakes up, she believes that she will be able to wake her father from his coma. She hopes her savvy will make her father well, but first she must get to the hospital, far away in Salina, in order to help him. So Mibs stows away on a pink, bible carrying bus that is supposed to be from Salina. She isn't alone, however, when her brother, Fish, tries to stop her, he, the minister's daughter, Bobbi, and Will, the boy that Mibs might possibly like all get sucked into her adventure. But there are a couple of problems. Mibs's savvy is definitely not what she originally thought, and the bus is going in the opposite direction from where she really wants to be.
