Publisher's Summary

A Newbery Honor recipient

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.

Critic Reviews

"A quirky feel-good narrative with a homespun warmth." (Sunday Times)

"The countrified fantasy elements are great fun, and Mibs' tenderness towards her father and other storm-tossed characters is touchingly real." (Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Join the family of supers

It could have been half as long, put my sister said it made her cry which made me need to read it because I judge a book by whether it can make me feel and I cried too. So 5 out of 5.

A Fun Family Listen for Kids and Parents too

Our family listens to lots of audio books. The writing was exceptional and expressive. The story was funny and Interesting. The characters had depth that resonated with kids and adults. Parent and 4 boys, ages 5-13, agree this is a gem to be enjoyed, far above many of the more popular Kid/YA books. We look forward to the other 2 in the series.

Meaningful story with likeable characters

This book is about a family with some special abilities, and how they get through various life situations while learning to manage their talents. The characters are very likeable and the storyline has many meaningful lessons throughout. I did not particularly enjoy the voices that the reader made for some of the characters, but otherwise, she did a wonderful job.
