This book is such very entertaining and fun story. The vivid descriptions in the book keep you captivated. The characters all have their own distinct personalities , and some their very own savvy, that I fell in love with. I can see why this book would be a Newbery Honor Book and am looking forward to reading more by this author.

Interview with the author
Here's my answer that I had for the giveaway:
I would love to have a savvy where I could imagine a place in my mind, and then I am there (similar to the movie Jumper). I love to travel, and I always wish that I could do it more and at great distances.
My real life savvy is being able to make up random recipes and it turns out tasty. I have never had to throw out food from a mistake, and my husband cannot figure out how I do it without measuring or just by thinking about ingredients that would taste well together. We just recently turned vegetarian so this savvy has really come in handy!
