Hola...... Savvy, by Ingrid Law is my next pick. So there is this girl, Mibs Beaumont, who lives in the middle of nowhere with the rest of her family. Except, they're not a normal family. Mibs' brothers can whip-up storms and create electricity. And it's not just them, when any member of her family turns 13, they get a......lets say, super-power. As Mibs' 13th birthday approaches, she digs herself into a metaphorical pit, and it's rather deep. With spunk and charm, you go on a somewhat painful adventure with Mibs and her crew. It's written in an accent, which personally, turns me off of most books. But here, it just adds to the enchanting theme of the book. Three and a half stars.
