    When I read this book I was hoping for a spectacular continuation of Savvy So, I was kind of disappointed I don t like that in some ways the family is falling apart, and there are long term problems that can t be fixed Plus, yes it was fun but not as much of a page turner as Savvy I knew what was coming and instead of really getting inside of the head of the main character, like I did with Mississippi Mibbs in Savvy, I just got fed up with Ledger Overall, I really liked this book, just didn t lo [...]

    Okay so yeah, the book I liked it but at the beginning it was really frustrating I read Savvy, the first book, and I didn t write a review for it but, I remember what happens, and I REALLY liked it So anyways going back to this book, Ledge is a very annoying character He runs away from his problems and I don t like that My personality makes me comfort my problems head on even if I don t want to, not run away from them and then figure out that if I want to solve them I can t run away Something Le [...]

    This is really good The companion novel to Savvy, a Newbery Honor book maybe 2 years ago These kids have savvies , special powers that make thenselves known on the 13th birthday Ledger s savvy causes mechanial things to explods, sending their component pieces flying and he can t control it His whole family has dealt with some savvy or other his grandfather could move mountains, his uncle handles big bugs, his cousin is literally electric Until they manage their own savvy, they are a danger to ev [...]

  6. Kater Cheek

    This is a charming middle grade fantasy about a boy in a magic wielding family finally getting his own savvy on his 13th birthday Ledger all the kids in the family have bizarre names hopes that he will become a super fast runner, the track star that his father hopes for Instead, his talent seems to be making mechanical things fall apart He hopes that he ll have something useful and controllable, like his twin cousins who can move things with their mind, or his mother, who can make people obey wi [...]

    gr.5 David Kremenitzer has done an excellent job of reading this fun, delightful, coming of age story about a 13 year old boy who has to learn how to control his savvy I read Savvy a while ago and have been looking forward to this second book Scumble can be read alone, although a few of the characters like Rocket and Grandpa Bamba, play central roles and others, like Mibs, the main character in Savvy , make brief appearances Even though delightful on its own, reading Savvy first, I think, will i [...]

    Unfortunately, I found Scumble was not as satisfying a read as Savvy The underlying theme of both these books involves dealing with personal demons and family the good, the bad, and the just plain weird As part of a family filled with ostensibly useful and controllable abilities, thirteen year old Kale is learning not so well to cope with his recently acquired, seemingly destructive savvy while his new found friend Sarah Jane fare s with personal and family problems of her own In contrast, the [...]

    When I read Savvy last summer I must admit that though I thought it was good I didn t love it for some reason Maybe because I tend to prefer edgier fiction written for older teens, maybe it was just the wrong book at the wrong time Nonetheless, I expected to feel the same way about Scumble Instead I found myself really enjoying it It s well written, pitch perfect, and an overall fantastic bit of magical realism for juvenile level readers It s touching, original and really held my interest The ch [...]

    I ve waited for this book for quite some time I love Ingrid Laws writing style and Savvy is one of my favorites Sadly, compared to Savvy, Scumble does not quite come up to par, and some plot points felt lame But the magic of the Beaumonts and the inspiring coming to age themes still resound in Scumble All in all a fun, comfortable read.

  11. Sebastian Vela

    The book, Scumble by Ingrid Law is a book that really tries to show you the importance of family The book is basically about a boy named Ledger, and he comes from a family that has these powers that are called a savvy, Ledge later goes to Wyoming for a wedding where he faces many problems, trying to keep his savvy under control, and also trying to keep his family secret from a reporter The details in this book are really describing, I purely understood every little thing that happened in the boo [...]

    In her debut novel Savvy, Ingrid Law introduced us to the big, unconventional Beaumont family, in which each child manifests a unique super power called a savvy on his or her thirteenth birthday The challenge is to recognize what that savvy is and scumble it, or figure out how to control it, before something big happens Otherwise people could get hurt or, even worse, outsiders might find out about the family s secret In this sequel, we meet some of the Beaumonts again, as well as their cousins t [...]

  15. Panda Incognito

    Scumble is a hilarious, rollicking, fun filled adventure If not for the groan inducing romance, I would have given it five stars Brilliantly conceived and written with down to earth yet fanciful prose, it s a vivid story of a boy trying to harness, or scumble , his savvy , a unique power which runs through his family, manifesting itself on each person s thirteen birthday The havoc which ensues during the wedding reception scene made me giggle like a small child The prose wasn t overly descriptiv [...]

  16. Denise Peng

    The book Scumble by Ingrid Law is pretty good and it tells the story about a boy who gets savvies a special power at the age of 13 Unfortunately, he didn t get the savvy that he wanted which is super speed and he ends up getting the ability to destroy anything he wanted to Savvies are unpredictable like that Ledger is afraid that he will never be able to control his new savvy He has to cope with trying not to tear everything apart To make matters worse, a girl named Sarah Jane from the nearby to [...]

    Another fantastically fun and heart warming savvy adventure When I first read this I liked it better than the first book, and though it still holds a special place in my heart, I ve decided to lower my rating to four stars this time around Once again I found the beginning quite hard to get to grips with and I definitely think it could have been shortened in some places Also, the first time I read this I thought the lead up to the reveal of view spoiler Sarah Jane s savvy hide spoiler was really [...]

  18. Nicole

    Not a sequel, but a companion to Savvy I liked this one just as much as the first one Maybe even a little This one was actually a bit exciting because of the nature of the main character s savvy much dangerous than mind reading The writing is fun and accessible but also very insightful and complex The ending felt a little too easy, but I am almost NEVER satisfied with endings, so this isn t a surprise Although I thought the ending of the love plot was clever and hilarious Also, I m really gla [...]

  19. Laura

    I was so excited to see another book after Savvy Though I did have misgivings because I had loved Savvy so much and I wasn t sure how any other book could deliver Thankfully this story did not disappoint The characters provided such amusement and wonder I loved the setting and the way people dealt with their relationships and powers It was good to be back in this world and see it being further explored I found myself loving the characters just as much as Savvy and I didn t want the story to end [...]

    This book is the second one in the series the first on is Savvy Ledger s family has special powers They are called savvy On your 13th birthday you get your savvy On Ledgers 13th birthday he waits to get his savvy His dreams of his savvy are running the fastest Instead he breaks a clock All the pieces come out, screws and all Ledger is frustrated his savvy is not suppose to be this There family starts to travel to a wedding in Wyoming Everything goes wrong Ledger can t control his savvy When they [...]

  21. Truly

    Scumble is a wonderful sequel the much loved book, Savvy One reason why I loved it is because Ledger s savvy was revealed at the beginning The story was about how he learned to control it, rather than his waiting to find out what it was I loved that the characters from Savvy were background characters For example, Ledger s cousin, Fish, got married His counsin, Tucker, was the newborn baby announced in Savvy I recommend Scumble to all book lovers, especially to Savvy fans.

  22. Amy

    The second in a pair of YA novels by Ingrid Law I read and enjoyed Savvy a couple of years ago and wasn t disappointed to find Law revisiting a family who come into their supernatural power at age thirteen In this book, we meet Ledger Kane who needs to learn to scumble his newly gained talent to keep from destroying everything around him There is deep young adult writing and then there is this type which frees us to travel somewhere fanciful for a little while.

  23. Haley Farrow

    I sort of liked this book It didn t really keep me hooked I was close to abandoning it, but decided to finish it I think I should ve abandoned it I liked his power, but definetly liked Savvy better It sort of had a Christian world view, but Savvy definetly had a better world view I think boys and girls would like this book.

  24. Ariana

    I really liked this book I haven t read Savvy but I bet it is good You should really read this if you like fantasy It s a book that will want you to keep reading It is kinda long but you won t care after you start it.

  25. Anirudh Ganesh

    Scumble is a very interesting take on a coming of age story in which the author brings a tale of a boy learning life through trial and error into a magical setting, and cleverly disguises it as a boy trying to learn his powers Throughout the book, you see our protagonist mess up time and time again, but these failures all help make him better in the end It is, at its most basic, a book about children with powers living in the human world and one kid who is having trouble adjusting to life with a [...]

  26. Brianna

    The book was good, but it didn t really pick up steam until about halfway through the book I found myself pushing through it, telling myself that it would be good When it finally did, it was magical.It s just that nine years have past since the last book and thats just a lot of time gone Will and Mibs are dating Hello I d like to hear about that But no, instead, we only get one speaking line from Mibs, and we never see hide or tail of her for the rest of the book Instead, we are stuck with a bo [...]
