"Savvy" Publishing

This book should be published because it is a funny yet serious. It is funny because sometimes the Beaumont kids' savvies go wrong and they mess something up or they have to move from their home because of the dangers their savvies brought them. The book is also serious because Mr. Beaumont is in the Salina Hospital and he is about to die, and they are very scared for him.

This book also very creative with the names of the characters, the savvies, and the plot. The book also kept me wondering what was going to happen, and sometimes when I got to the end of a chapter I wanted to keep reading. This book should be published because it is a very interesting and fun book.
