Ingrid Law delivers another heartwarming story about the magic of friendship and the power of family in this companion to her Newbery Honor winning Savvy.
Gypsy Beaumont has always been a whirly-twirly free spirit, so as her thirteenth birthday approaches, she hopes to get a magical ability that will let her fly, or dance up to the stars. Instead, she wakes up on her birthday with blurry vision . . . and starts seeing flashes of the future and past. But when Momma and Poppa announce that her very un-magical, downright mean Grandma Pat has Alzheimer’s and is going to move in with them, Gypsy’s savvy—along with her family’s—suddenly becomes its opposite. Now it’s savvy mayhem as Gypsy starts freezing time, and no one could have predicted what would happen on their trip to bring Grandma Pat home . . . not even Gypsy.
With her trademark style and whimsical, beautiful language, Ingrid Law has written another wonderfully moving companion to her Newbery Honor winning Savvy.
"PLEASE, MRS. FOSTER - I'VE SEEN your future, and you really don't want to buy this soap. "Gypsy Beaumont! Stop making a scene and let go." - Switch by Ingrid Law
Gypsy's power is either seeing into the future or she really wants this soap. I don't remember her much from the first story, Savvy. She must have been a baby since it's been like twelve years since Mib got her power. I love her name and the potential that she can be a bit of a rebel. (Now looking at the synopsis it looks like I'm right about her seeing the future).
Have you read any of the Savvy books?
