I have a lot of books I've bought or received in a fury of excitement, only to have them languish on the shelves. This is one of those books.
by Ingrid Law Nine years after Mibs's Savvy journey, her cousin Ledge has just turned thirteen . . .
But Ledger Kale's savvy is a total dud--all he does is make little things fall apart. So his parents decide it's safe to head to Wyoming, where it's soon revealed that Ledge's savvy is much more powerful than anyone thought. Worse, his savvy disaster has an outside witness: Sarah Jane Cabot, reporter wannabe and daughter of the local banker. Just like that, Ledge's beloved normal life is over. Now he has to keep Sarah from turning family secrets into headlines, stop her father from foreclosing on Uncle Autry's ranch, and scumble his savvy into control so that, someday, he can go home.
Starring a cast both fresh and familiar, Scumble brilliantly melds Ingrid Law's signature heart and humor with the legendary Wild West.
I kind of can't believe I haven't read this yet. Savvy was one of my favorite books of last year, so when I saw this at ALA, I sort of stalked the table until I was able to get my copy. I wasn't expecting it to be there, either, so it was one of my 'big scores' of the convention. I was all ready to read it when I came home, but as tends to happen, life intruded and this got pushed back and back and back again...
So, what do you guys think? Anyone read this?
What's on your tbr pile?
