it was amazing

Savvy is a great book for young readers, as well as those that are young at heart. Ingrid Law shows great imagination and depth in her story about a girl, who on a quest to help her ailing father, discovers what makes her special from everyone else.

Mibs, the protagonist of Savvy, comes from a family that has many special attributes. Her grandfather can move mountains, one of her brothers causes storms, and her other brother can create electricity. As you can imagine, she has much to live up to.

When the story starts she is approaching her 13th birthday, which is an important year in the life of a Beaumont; it is when they find their "savvy." As Mibs and her family are getting ready for this important occasion, their father is hospitalized because of a car wreck, leaving their plans in limbo.

After being placed in the care of the local pastor and his wife, Mibs along with her brothers Fish and Samson, and the pastor's children, decide that she must go help her father in the hospital. In the process of discovering her savvy and finding her father, Mibs finds herself on an unforgettable adventure across the states of Kansas and Nebraska, otherwise known as "Kansaska-Nebransas" in a Bible-salesman's truck.

Ingrid Law's smooth writing makes the story easy to read and difficult to put down. She keeps the story moving at a strong pace, which keeps the adventure at full throttle. This is a must read book for anyone who wants a little imagination and fun in their life.
