Walden Media has bought feature rights to Ingrid Law’s debut novel Savvy, the story of an adolescent girl with supernatural powers.
Deal was announced in conjunction with the acquisition by Walden and Penguin Young Readers Group of North American rights to the novel. Savvy will be published by Dial Books for Young Readers/Walden Media in May.
The story centers on a family whose members discover, upon turning 13, that they possess supernatural powers that they’ll retain for the rest of their lives, such as making it rain for days or creating furious gusts of wind. When the latest family member is about to hit 13, her life’s turned upside down by a tragic accident.
