|Title: The Witches of Worm|
|Author: Zilpha Keatley Snyder|
|Reviewer/Reporter: Jessica C., age 12|
When Jessica was in a dark, cold cave she never thought of who or what might be in there too. This was a special cave. She always thought it was a safe place to come and read. It was always her and Brandonís secret place. Now it was only her because there was no friendship between her and Brandon any more. Thatís why she didnít think anyone else was in there. Suddenly, she found a small black cat staring her right in the eyes. Jessica had never liked cats before. When she saw that little, black, nasty, cat she got frightened. Although she had always hated cats this one was not usual. This one was hungry and nasty and did not have a mother. Jessica must save it or the poor thing would die. If only she knew his past and what he planned for her future, she would leave him to die.
This was a fantastic book for anyone who enjoys magic and mystery. At the beginning it was kind of hard to understand. When I got to the middle through the end, it gets more interesting. For example, it stops talking about Jessica and her motherís relationship and starts getting on with Jessica and Worm. Then you canít lay the book downÖI think this book was a long, but good book. It starts out a little bit boring, if you just read for a little bit longer, then it will get more exciting. There are also two sequels to this book, and they are just as good as this one and the sequels also have the same characters in them.
