This is certainly a novel aimed at tweens, and manages to convey pitch-perfect messages dealing with peers, guilt and growing up. While the story is based on the family’s supernatural powers, the emotion and events are certainly the main features that carry this powerful story, and I am positive that any child who reads this will find an element to truly connect with. When an author’s first published novel is this ’savvy’ one can only look forward to the future.
If you're looking for a holiday gift for your tween, Savvy would be a great choice. It's perfect for Harry Potter lovers (and haters) and those who are new to the fantasy genre. Boys will probably enjoy the havoc that the Beaumont children create and girls will likely swoon at the budding romance between Mibs and the preacher's son
