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.

How disappointing! I loved Scumble and Savvy, but in this volume the magic is just gone. I couldn't sympathize with Gypsy the way I did with Mibs or Ledge. The plot is frenetic but lacks actual substance. I read up to page 250 and just couldn't get any farther.

This is a sequel, read Savvy first. Fun road trip adventure. Suspension of disbelief necessary for adult readers. A fun lark for tweens and kids. Fast moving. Satisfying. wild winter weather and amazing magical feats. loved it.
