Cats. Jessica's never liked them. Especially not a skinny, ugly kitten that looks like a worm. Worm. Jessica wishes she'd never brought Worm home with her, because now he's making her do terrible things. She's sure she isn't imagining the evil voice coming from the cat, telling her to play mean tricks on people. But how can she explain what's happening?

Witches. Jessica has read enough books to know that Worm must be a witch's cat. He's cast a spell on her, but whom can she turn to? After all, no one will believe that Worm has bewitched her...or worse!

loved Black and Blue Magic and was hoping to get the same kind of fun uplifting story from this one, too, but it was just creepy as someone mentioned. and not in a good way to me. almost like a kid's version of a dark horror story. not what I was looking for at all. the ending even seemed strange and didn't answer any questions.
