|Two days can be a long time to wait for
the day when your magic powers,
your “savvy,” will finally appear, but
Mississippi "Mibs" Beaumont has been
waiting for this day her whole sorry
life and knows that her savvy will be
extra-special. (Maybe not having super
powers, but still a savvy good enough
to show everyone that ever picked on
Mibs just how wrong they were.) Will
her savvy be enough though to fix her
family when life causes things to fall
apart? Now Mibs is going to have to
stop being afraid and start really
living. And this time, she better not
let anything stop her—not kidnapping,
stealing, boys with crushes, salesmen,
wrong-way road trips or even
talking tattoos—from saving her daddy
and finding her own savvy-way in life.
