Book Review: Switch (Savvy, #3) by Ingrid Law

Title: Switch (#3 in the Savvy series)
Author: Ingrid Law
Published by: Dial Books (2015)

My Rating: ✭✭✭✭✭

SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS:

Gypsy Beaumont has always been a whirly-twirly free spirit, so as her thirteenth birthday approaches, she hopes to get a magical ability that will let her fly, or dance up to the stars. Instead, she wakes up on her birthday with blurry vision . . . and starts seeing flashes of the future and past. But when Momma and Poppa announce that her very un-magical, downright mean Grandma Pat has Alzheimer’s and is going to move in with them, Gypsy’s savvy—along with her family’s—suddenly becomes its opposite. Now it’s savvy mayhem as Gypsy starts freezing time, and no one could have predicted what would happen on their trip to bring Grandma Pat home  . . . not even Gypsy.


My Review: 

There is too much I loved about this book that goes far beyond what power words have. This was a stunning companion to the just-as-amazing Savvy and Scumble!

Themes: It was so much fun and action-packed, yet still throbbed with themes of family and love; I loved the way Christian aspects and morals made their way cleverly into the story. This story was magical without being dark; it was a wholesome and clean magic (just as the first two in this series) and yet still fun and sparkly, so to speak, enough to be un-put-down-able. I was capitivated from the first page to the last. 

Characters/Plot: The characters are written so vividly. I loved each of them so much! The magic was written in a realisitic way, but still with that tangible magical feel. The plotline was action packed, well plotted and so, so, amazing. While there were on-the-edge-of-your-seat moments, there also were many moving scenes. This book held so many good themes and morals and I loved every word of it.


A fantastic addition to the Savvy series and I’d highly, highly recommend it to all ages!
