Virginia Readers' Choice book for 09-10. Recommended for gr. 5-9. Mibs (short for Mississippi) is about to turn 13, and is a bit worried about her "savvy". The members of her family develop a talent of sorts on their 13th birthdays - one brother has an effect on electricity, another on wind, and things her mother does tend to turn out well. Unfortunately her father is injured in an auto accident and Mibs and her brother are left with other family while her mother and oldest brother go to the hospital. Mibs is determined to develop a healing savvy and wants to go to her father also. She stows away in a pink Bible van and acquires unexpected allies in what turns out to be quite an adventure. A charming story that should appeal to both boys and girls.
