Ingrid Law follows up the popular and well-received SAVVY. Each of the children in the incredible Kale family has a “gift” that presents itself on his or her thirteenth birthday. Ledger is most definitely not happy when, instead of the athletic prowess he’d hoped for, he finds himself blowing up people’s watches and motorcycles. David Kremenitzer throws himself into this American-style tall tale with verve and gusto, relishing the author’s rollicking turns of phrase. One of the best parts is when Ledge decides it’s time to “get the hay bales out of Denver.” Kremenitzer’s portrayal of a nosy young reporter on the trail of the scoop of a lifetime has just the right combination of dynamism and comic frustration. It’s perfect family fare with plenty of humor. D.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2010]
