Listener Opinions

    " I found this book to be entertaining, and it was a very quick read. I thought the mix of the semi-supernatural elements in with mainly realistic fiction elements made for a good story. The writing was pretty strong as well. However, I thought the story lacked depth...it just seemed a little 'one-note' to me. I also had a hard time deciding whether I liked the main character or not. I wavered back and forth (nearly through the whole book!) between feeling slightly sorry for her and feeling disdain for her actions--ended up feeling mildly sympathetic towards her in the end. Overall though, I did like this Newbery Honor book, but it will definitely not be included in my top picks for children's novels. "

    " This was a book that I loved when I was a kid. So much so that I had to own a copy and re-read it again for old time sake. ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Coppedge | 1/31/2014

    " This is another book with a prickly main character, like The Great Gilly Hopkins or Dicey's Song. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grayson | 1/27/2014

    " It would have made the book more dramatic if the cats words were in a different font. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Hastings | 1/23/2014

    " A possessed cat causes lots of bad things to happen. TOTALLY creepy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justine | 1/20/2014

    " Totally creepy and awesome! I really like this book because it wasnt your typical "goosebumps" scary. I was a little afraid of the neighborhood cats after this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/6/2014

    " I remember reading this as a child and it creeped me out. Still did as an adult. Cats, witches, creep old lady, careless mother. Creepy creepy, creepy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 1/2/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristina | 11/19/2013

    " This was one Newbery that I didn't like. It wasn't horrible... but it wasn't what I'd think consider Newbery honor worthy either. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylea | 11/4/2013

    " One of my favorite reads and authors when I was in 6th and 7th grade. I loved the adventures and mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 10/6/2013

    " Jessica really starts to scare me as she spirals out of control. She really seems to become "evil". But she remains sympathetic, because you really feel bad for her, as she is lonely and neglected. And in the end, she redeems herself. "

    " This book was good, despite that it seemed like more of a child's book on the front cover. I started it thinking that I'd get bored of it really quickly, on the contrary, I couldn't put it down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dayna Smith | 12/12/2011

    " Jessica's mom is never home and her former best friend Brandon has moved on to other friends. When Jessica rescues a cat she calls Worm she begins to hear voices and do terrible things. Is Worm a witches' cat? Is Jessica responsible for her own actions or is Worm "making her do it"? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lola Wallace | 11/10/2011

    " Loved "The Egypt Game" when I was a kid so I thought I'd try something else by ZK Snyder. If I was 12 I think I would have liked this just as much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wint War | 10/26/2010

    " It only got 2 stars since it kept our attention. However, we did not learn anything new, it did not invoke thought nor did it have any endearing characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 2/26/2010

    " Wow, this book was creepy. Sure, it could have been more creepy, but still, it weirded me and my dad out a little. We listened to it on a road trip, and it kept our attention pretty well. I really liked the way it ended. "
