Tica's book report Sep.29,2009


I read the book Savvy by Ingrid Law for my book report. It is a book about a girl named Mibbs short for Mississippi. Mibb’s family is not really what you call normal. Each person on her mom’s side gets a special gift for their 13th birthday. It’s not like a new set of colored pencils or a new iPod, it’s a gift called a savvy. Every savvy is different, for example it could be being perfect at everything you do or brewing up big storms when near a large amount of water, along with many other things. When Mibbs wakes up on the morning of her 13th birthday, on the next bed over her little sister Gypsy bounds out of bed. Now you have to understand that Gypsy could sleep through anything, even if the house caught on fire or a car alarm went off right in her ear, so this was very very unusual. In the next couple of days Mibbs figures out that her savvy gives her the ability to wake people up and to read the thoughts of people who have any kind of ink on their skin; like tattoos both permanent and temporary or doodles and writing. Here are some Photos of drawings I made of tattoos that she could talk to. In the book she uses her savvy to solve a family crisis.

  1. Hi Tica,
    What an interesting book Savvy seems to be. Who wrote it? It sounds like I'd like to read it too. Quite honestly, I don't remember my 13th birthday, not anything about it, but I think it would have been cool to have had something very special happen on the day I turned a teenager. We'll all need to try to think of something VERY special for you on the day you turn 13!! Good illustrations, by the way; you have talent.
