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.

    It’s a great book so far. This book is very very interesting. I had to stop for a little bit to read a book for school I can’t wait to get back to it

      The second book in the Savvy series, Ingrid mixes old and beloved characters up with fresh, new ones. Ledger Kale, our Savvy star in Scumble, dreams that he'll be fast. Not just run-around-the-block-in-five-minutes fast, but run-around-the-WORLD-in-five-seconds fast. Or at least, that's what his dad wants. But instead of the supersonic speed Savvy Ledge has been fantasizing he'll get on his thirteenth birthday, he can wreck ANYTHING man-made. He's a human sledgehammer. To make matters worse, his family decides to attend a family wedding in Wyoming. He ends up staying in Wyoming in hopes that he'll learn to Scumble his Savvy before the summer ends. With Grandma Dollop's special peanut butter jar stolen, a nosy reporter named Sarah Jane snooping around and coming dangerously close to discovering well-kept family secrets, a busted up motorcycle, and screws flying, what could go wrong? I really loved Scumble; it was a page-turner. With no shortage of messes and magic, it really packs a punch of charm and kept me glued to the pages, unable to look away, as if Sarah Jane had written it herself. I recommend this to all fans of the first Savvy book, this one is even better than the first!

            Scumble is the second book following Savvy, so if you didn't read Savvy, you won't understand it as well. Otherwise, this book is filled with detail and exciting plots!

                Although this book is kind of coasting on Savvy's glory, Law has managed to pull off an amazing stunt. To write a sequel that is almost as good as its predecessor. Scumble kicks off with the taste of adventure that soon morphs into mystery. And so many mysteries! Why are the birch trees growing so fast at a wedding? Who did Robert love? And how can Jack scumble his savvy?

                      I personally diddn't like this book. I read the first couple of chapters or so and thought that it just wasn't as good as savvy.
