Savvy means the ability to do something in both a quick and efficient manner.
verb (used with object), verb (used without object) 1. to know; understand. adjective 3. shrewdly informed; experienced and well-informed; canny. "Savvy" is slang derived f…rom the French word "savoir", which means "to know". It can be used in many ways, to refer to 'intelligence' or specifically to 'street smarts', as in "Don't worry about him, he'll be alright, he is pretty savvy". Means, he knows what is going on, or catches on quickly, kind of idea. When it doesn't refer to intelligence, it usually refers to 'understanding'. For example, in his "Pirates of the Caribbean" series movies, Johnny Depp's character "Captain Jack Sparrow" constantly asks 'Savvy?' to people, after he has explained something. In this context it means, 'do you understand?' or, "Ya know?"

Bobbi dose many things, she dose not have any Savvy, but she helps Mississippi, not with physical challenges, but with the adapting and changing into a young woman. In the boo…k her main role is a teen who seems not to care, but is really helpful and nice.
Bobbie doesn't have a Savvy because she isn't in Mibs' family. Only the Beaumonts have Savvy's, that's why Mibs had to quit school and also Rocket and Fish. The Savvy's they h…ave are also supposed to be kept secret.
