Review: 4/5 stars
Savvy by Ingrid Law is a sweet book about a girl and her journey to discover her own special gifts. I enjoyed this book but I'm afraid it didn't quite live up to the hype that I had read about it. It has a good message with a lot of interesting and likable characters and the story is original. I'm not sure what was missing for me but I still recommend reading it. I think I was expecting a 5 star book and for me it just didn't quite make it there.
Rating: 1.1.1 It's been a while since I read it but I don't think there was anything at all offensive in this book. My 9 year-old daughter really liked it.
