Mibs has just figured out what her savvy is. Everyone in her family except her father and her little siblings have one, and their's are amazing. Her older brother Fish can make hurricanes. Her Grandpa could move land around. Before he died, at least. Her mother is perfect. All Mibs is hoping for is a good savvy, not a weird one. But since she jinxed it, of course she got a weird one. Mibs can read people's minds through tatoos. And marker. Any bits of ink on a person's skin, and she can read their mind. Sounds pretty awesome, right? But the problem was, she couldn't shut them out. With her papa in the hospital, Mibs and her siblings travel to the hospital where he is staying. Picking up some unlikely friends along the way. And all the while trying to control her savvy and keep herself from going insane.
I really liked this book! It is the first book of a series, and it is very, very good. The other two books out are still this good. It is a funny tale about family, special powers, and friends. The family learns to trust each other, and their friends. I could not tell where this book was going, and that is a good thing. I can usually dissect the books plot as I am reading, which generally ruins the whole story. But not with this one! I would recommend this book to 5th grade and up. It is a good book for most ages. You should really try this book out in your free time!
