Savvy by Ingrid Law

Savvy Savvy by Ingrid Law.  For most people, turning 13 might mean getting a cool present, but for Mibs, it means receiving her special power.  Being special can be fun, but it can also be scary.  Her brother Rocket’s power makes light bulbs explode, and her brother Fish can cause hurricanes.  To make matters worse, Mib’s father is in a terrible car accident right before her birthday.  Now Mibs desperately wants her power to be something that can save her father.  If you secretly wish you had a super power, this book is for you!

    I have read Savvy too and I think it is interesting that Mibs savvy a lot calmer than most people in her family. I also wonder why Mibs family has more obvious savvy’s than most other families. If I had a savvy I would want one where nothing too bad happened because Mibs fainted and one of her brothers caused a hurricane.

    I’m glad you enjoyed Savvy. I agree with you that I would not want a savvy where anything bad happened. I don’t think I would want to cause hurricanes or electrical outages because that would make life awfully dangerous. I think being able to heal people would be nice.
