If you were a fan of Savvy, you’ll definitely want to pick up its companion book, Scumble. If you missed Savvy, you’ll still want to pick up Scumble. While having some knowledge from the first book is helpful, this is a companion, not a sequel, so you won’t be confused if you’ve never read Savvy.
Ledge is just sure his savvy will make him super-fast. With his dad’s love of running, and his mom’s savvy genes, what else could it be? Things don’t go as planned on his 13th birthday, though. The stopwatch his little sister uses to time his running doesn’t say he’s gotten any faster. In fact, it doesn’t say anything at all. Ledge’s new savvy has blown it apart.
His new savvy seems to make him a walking disaster. Any man-made thing he comes near can fall apart without notice. The family car, the beautiful motorcycle at the gas station, even his uncle’s barn. Ledge is definitely going to have to learn to control his savvy before he can live with the rest of society. Until he learns to scumble his savvy, though, Ledge will be staying on his uncle’s farm with other savvy family members. Throw in a nosy wannabe reporter, a three-legged dog, and a buried treasure, and you’re in for an adventure!
