The Witches of Worm by Zilpha Keatley Snyder

The Witches of Worm by Zilpha Keatley Snyder
Format: Paperback

I first read this book in elementary school. All these years later I asked for it for Christmas. I’d been snooping around looking for titles of books I’d read back then. Some I vaguely remembered others nothing more than the sense that I liked it. I think if you were to cross reference the Accelerated Reader list with Newbery lists you would find a disturbing amount of my books. This book is not exactly my current reading level but the story is gold. I think it teaches a lesson while roping you in with a bit of mystery. I think Jessica is about how most middle school girls see themselves, but I think anyone can see themselves in her. I also think we all have a little Worm in need of exorcism of whatever kind. (And yes I enjoy being vague.)
