Description

Read the New York Times bestseller and companion to Newbery Honor winner Savvy! It's nine years after Savvy, and Mibs' cousin Ledge is on the verge of turning thirteen. More than anything, he wants the power to run like the wind. But when his birthday comes, he discovers that his savvy is actually making things fall apart. It starts out with small things, but then it gets worse. To top it all off, someone outside the family has witnessed his destruction. Now, in addition to trying to figure out how to control - or scumble - his savvy, he's got to worry about how to protect the family secrets. Over the course of one amazing summer, Ledge learns a lot about himself and his family, makes a new - and very unlikely - friend, and learns to appreciate his newfound skills. "Readers will delight in the tall-tale tropes and Ledge's authentic physical, emotional, and artistic challenges." - Booklist, starred review "The title stands alone in its fast-paced plot with twists and turns galore, and readers familiar with Savvy will eat it up and wish for more." - School Library Journal

Professional reviews

"Ingrid Law follows up the popular and well-received SAVVY. Each of the children in the incredible Kale family has a "gift" that presents itself on his or her thirteenth birthday. Ledger is most definitely not happy when, instead of the athletic prowess he'd hoped for, he finds himself blowing up people's watches and motorcycles. David Kremenitzer throws himself into this American-style tall tale with verve and gusto, relishing the author's rollicking turns of phrase. One of the best parts is when Ledge decides it's time to "get the hay bales out of Denver." Kremenitzer's portrayal of a nosy young reporter on the trail of the scoop of a lifetime has just the right combination of dynamism and comic frustration. It's perfect family fare with plenty of humor. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
