With their help Jane gets caught up in a series of adventures involving a out-of-control science fair project, a pirate captain on the run from a mutinous crew, a lonely dentist, and a newly constructed bell tower that endangers Remarkable’s most beloved inhabitant—a skittish lake monster named Lucky. Quirky characters, an unremarkable heroine and a lake monster! What could be better?
- Spy School by Gibbs. A spy academy in Washington D.C. recruits twelve-year old Ben Ripley for his amazing cryptography skills, even though he’s pretty sure he doesn’t have any.

Even though he doesn’t start off as spy material Ben really is a smart kid and, with a lot of help from Erica, the star student, he hunts down the spy himself and gains acceptance into the school for real. This is a fun spy adventure with lots of boy humor and tons of gadgets!
- The Storm Makers by Smith. The McDuff parents moved to Wisconsin to follow their dreams bringing twelve-year-old twins Simon and Ruby with them.

A great story with a plucky main character, and if you liked Savvy you’ll definitely enjoy this book too!
