We’re staying in the savvy world, as we cover the first half of Scumble and follow along with Ledger Kale as he gets his savvy. Ledger’s savvy has him blowing things up and yet his irresponsible parents drive cross-country with him for a wedding. Don’t worry, we have plenty to say about that and bad parenting. Ledger and his sister then get to spend the rest of the summer on the farm of savvy family rejects for people who are failing to scumble. Ledger continues to get in trouble, mostly due to the actions of local town girl Sarah Jane Cabot. Ledger is trying to learn to scumble while also trying to keep family secrets.
Next week we will be reading chapters 19-36 of book 2 in the series, Scumble.
