From page one, this coming-of-age tale is unlike any other. Its unusual plot—chock-full of stunning detail and all things unexpected—and its strikingly real characters, draw readers into the story's emotion and the authentic "growing up" struggles it personifies. Each character offers a deep and differing look into the struggles kids face as they mature and, thrown together on an unlikely adventure, the four adolescents show just how powerful true friendship can be. With strong themes of being true to yourself, accepting the consequences of actions, and learning to see others for who they really are, this fast-moving, action-packed adventure begs a great discussion.

While this story is full of magic and clearly fantasy, its characters, their emotions, and the situations they face are so realistic that it provides an authentic springboard for some important discussions among older readers. This is a rare book that many different kinds of readers will enjoy and teachers can use to teach or reinforce important lessons about growing up in an authentic format.
Publisher Summary
Recounts the adventures of Mibs Beaumont, whose thirteenth birthday has revealed her "savvy"--a magical power unique to each member of her family--just as her father is injured in a terrible accident.

A Newbery Honor Book

Thirteen is when a Beaumont’s savvy hits—and with one brother who causes hurricanes and another who creates electricity, Mibs Beaumont is eager to see what she gets. But just before the big day, Poppa is in a terrible accident. And now all Mibs wants is a savvy that will save him. In fact, Mibs is so sure she’ll get a powerful savvy that she sneaks a ride to the hospital on a rickety bus with her sibling and the preacher’s kids in tow. After this extraordinary adventure—full of talking tattoos and a kidnapping—not a soul on board will ever be the same.
