I read this a while back and while I can't remember the exact details, I remember the general idea. I liked this book. The story idea is original and creative. Basically, when people in Mibs Beaumont's family turn 13, they find their "savvy" or special power. For example, Mibs's brother Fish can create hurricanes, and her other brother Rocket can make electricity or something. Overall, I liked this book and I recommend it. There is a sequel called Scumble, but I never got around to reading it. I enjoyed reading this book, and I hope, if you choose to read it, that you do too.
