I first read this book as a twelve year old and I've never forgotten it in 20 years. Judith, is she or isn't she a witch? What fate will befall Lynn as she gets closer to the truth? How far will Mrs.Tuggles go to protect her alleged student of the craft? Is it the over-reactive imagination of a young girl or the sinister reality of a young woman? The story of Lynn and Judith draws you in and holds you hostage until the very last word!

I read this book as a preteen and I am now buying it for my preteen stepdaughter. It is a thrilling book for youngsters without being too scarey. I recommend it for any child interested in not only the supernatural, but in investigating situations, as well. In searching for this book, I have discovered the rest of the six book series, and I am sure to read those now, too!

I liked the book a lot and thought it was very subtly done! I haven't read any of the sequels yet, so it may get more ~supernatural~ but as it stands, it's such a well-layered book. Lynn and her friend Mouse spend the summer gathering evidence that her sister Judith is a novice witch under the tutelage of an old neighborhood lady, Mrs. Tuggle. It's such an interesting look at sisterhood and a sibling's confusion at the onset of young adulthood. I thought it was really smart to conflate witchcraft with adolesence and puberty. Probably too subtle for it's audience, but great for those parents reading along.

I read this book in the 6th grade and as an adult I have been looking for it for year. I have never forgotten this book although I believe that the cover the one at my library had was purple. I can't wait to share this with my daughters.

This book is pretty good! It's sort of spooky though,but the ending was really good! This book is okay but I liked the Alice books better!
