Such a great book! You have all the normal topics: Coming of age, first loves, family... In a not-so-normal household. I loved reading about Mibs, a 13-year-old girl, who had to wrestle not only with being a teenager, but also with her newfound ability that comes with being a member of the extra-special Beaumont family. It leads her on an incredible adventure that will make you laugh at times and cry at others.

It's AMAZING!!! if you like twist and turns, growing up, and unlikely friends this is the book for you!!

This is a great book. Totally recommend it

Savvy is one of my most amazing books! It is really meaningful and great. It stars Mibs, Will, Bobby and Lester. It is an really fun adventure story with humor, fun and a bit of romance. There are 2 books that follow after that I also love!

Ingrid is an exceptional writer who brings the true art of reading and puts it in a masterpiece named Savvy. The Beaumont family has- what you can say- superpowers A.K.A. savvies. On their thirteenth birthday, they discover one savvy, and Mibs is turning thirteen. Everything is awesome- well, that is until a few days before her birthday, where her poppa gets hurt in an accident. Her mom and brother go to the hospital, but she is left behind. Now, the author adds the elect of sneaking in a delivery bus and running away from Mibs' thirteenth party. It will take more than a savvy- it will take love, hope, and determination to traverse obstacles and save her poppa.

I am going to read this book, and five people, including my best friend and the librarian have told me that it is a great book. Cant wait to read it!

I heard from my friends that this book is superb. It sounds super interesting and cool. I would definitely want to read this book. Does anyone even know what savvy means? Well anyways this book has the most unique title that I have ever seen. Best to book to be wanting to read ever!!

So I have not finished this book yet and I am really only at the beginning but so far it is really good and it is about this girl and she is turning 13 and that’s when the kids in her family get their Savvy but her dad gets in a car crash the day before her birthday.

Savvy is about Mibs and everbody in the family...on their 13th birthday they get a special power. For example her brother Rocket has the power of electrifying things. When Mibs wakes up and she thinks that she "cures" the turtle she thinks her savvy power is to cure people and animals...when her papa gets into an accident she thinks she can cure him. However, she learns that her savvy power is different.....
