Summary

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.

A very entertaining novel April 2, 2011

i picked this book up by chance and bought it after reading the first 10 pages because i didn't want to put it down. Mibs (short for Mississippi) is a wonderful character who turns 13 in the beginning of the story. it is an important age for anyone but especially for the Beaumont, who find out at 13 what their "savvy" is. Her brother Rocket can create electricity. Her brother Fish can make hurricanes. Her grandfather can move mountains. Now it's her turn.
But her father gets into an accident, turning everything upside down and sending them on an adventure that teaches them some hard life lessons.
