“Hopefully Ingrid Law will not learn how to scumble since she really has a great savvy in writing these books. 9 years after Mibs got her savvy her cousin Ledger has just gotten his. He is a walking and talking implosive device who is taken out to his uncle's ranch in Sundance Wyo. to learn how to deal with his ability to destroy anything. Meeting up with Sarah Jane, reporter and the banker's daughter challenges Ledger who must hide his and his family's secrets. What a rollicking tale of mayhem and fun. A tale everyone should read not just 8-12 year olds as the writer reminds us that there are many families around with special savvy abilities. Many may even shop at your store.”

Description


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.
