Mississippi "Mibs" Beaumont has spent much time wondering what her savvy will be when she turns 13. Her older brothers discovered thrilling powers on their thirteenth birthdays; one can conduct electricity and another causes stormy weather. Mibs has high hopes. If she's lucky, she might be able to turn the nasty girls at school into slimy green frogs or else glue their mouths shut with the nod of her head.
But Mibs' birthday does not go according to plan and her savvy surprises everyone. A good clean magic-powers story for students in Grades 5 through 7. Church-goers will feel especially welcome in this book.
