Happy 10th Anniversary SAVVY!

By Trevor Ingerson | June 7 2018 | All-School Reads

Savvy is celebrating its 10th anniversary of publication with a special paperback edition! This Newbery Honor book has everything you could want in a coming of age story (and more): adventure, magic tattoos, and a rickety bus full of determined kids.

For generations, the Beaumont family has harbored a secret. At the age of thirteen, every family member gets their “savvy,” the ability to manipulate the world around them using a special skill. One of Mibs’ brothers can cause hurricanes and the other can create electricity, while their Grandpa Bomba can literally move mountains. So when her father is in a terrible accident the day before her thirteenth birthday, all Mibs wants is a savvy that will save him. Mibs sneaks onto a salesman’s bus bound for the hospital… only to find the bus heading in the opposite direction.
