With her trademark style and whimsical, beautiful language, Ingrid Law has written another wonderfully moving companion to her Newbery Honor winning Savvy.
Ingrid Law is the New York Times bestselling author of three novels for young readers about the Beaumont family: Savvy, Scumble, and Switch. Her books have been placed on more than 30 state reading lists, and have earned accolades from Publishers Weekly, Oprah's reading list, the Today Show's Al Roker's Book Club for Kids, and the Smithsonian. Savvy was named a Newbery Honor book in 2009. She lives in Lafayette, Colorado.
Praise for Switch
"Along with turning her increasingly self-confident protagonist's fondness for spontaneous twirling into a thematic leitmotif, [Law] salts the narrative with wonderfully silly words and the cast with helpful, warmhearted allies."--Kirkus Reviews "Much like authors Deborah Wiles or Patricia Reilly Giff, Law contrasts warm family support with personal despair and hardship, nicely balancing her dramatic action with stability and optimism... Law has again told a story with as much heart as creativity."--School Library Journal "Law tenderly handles the challenges of having a grandparent with Alzheimer's, highlighting the power of familial love...Readers will be caught up in this snowy, magical adventure and the characters' efforts to balance their true, sparkly selves with growing up."--Booklist "Eccentricity abounds, with vibrant supporting characters...Gypsy carries on the family traditions with aplomb."--Horn Book
