Sarah Jane "SJ" Cabot appears in Scumble and is the daughter of the local buisnessman in town. She is the author of a newspaper, The Sundance Scuttlebutt, that reports about odd things. Her late mother Summer was from a savvy family, so Sarah Jane has a savvy as well. Her savvy is to make people believe what she writes, like Dinah Kale's savvy, but through writing. She became a friend of Ledger Kale (and possible love interest) in the book.
