Nine years after Mibs's Savvy journey, her cousin Ledge has just turned 13.... But Ledger Kale's savvy is a total dud - all he does is make little things fall apart. So his parents decide it's safe to head to Wyoming, where it's soon revealed that Ledge's savvy is much more powerful than anyone thought. Worse, his savvy disaster has an outside witness: Sarah Jane Cabot, reporter wannabe and daughter of the local banker.
Just like that, Ledge's beloved normal life is over. Now he has to keep Sarah from turning family secrets into headlines, stop her father from foreclosing on Uncle Autry's ranch, and scumble his savvy into control so that, someday, he can go home.
Starring a cast both fresh and familiar, Scumble brilliantly melds Ingrid Law's signature heart and humor with the legendary Wild West.
Listen to the first book, Savvy.

My tween daughter loved it and I enjoyed it as well. Well performed and excellently written fun story that kids can relate to.
Not quite the caliber of Hunger Games or Harry Potter, but enjoyable never the less. Safe for any reader. On par with books like the Redwall series or the Underland Chronicles (yet without the violence).
I like how important family is to the characters, and regardless of the amazing abilities they have, they seem to have to deal with the same sorts of things everyone else does.
When they all came together in the end to defend the ranch.
When the little girls offered the man trying to bulldoze their home all their "gold"
I think this book was about equal to its predecessor, "Savvy."
I enjoyed reading Savvy and decided to listen to the audio version of Scumble. However, I just had to buy the print version of this book to complete it because I found the audio a bit difficult to listen to. I'm sure the narrator meant well, but the pitch and tone of his reading was not at all to my taste. It felt forced and overacted.
Great rendition of a fantastic story! The whole family loved it. Will look for more from this author
