Feel the darkness, touch the black, hear the shadows whispers back... Lynn and her best friend, Mouse, are convinced Mrs. Tuggle is a witch, even if no one believes them. Lynn thought they were safe after they escaped the witch's clutches last summer, but the evil Mrs. Tuggle hasn't finished with them yet. A menacing flock of crows is following Mouse's every move and the girls' only protection against this dangerous woman is destroyed. Lynn and Mouse know they have to act fast. But they don't know what Mrs. Tuggle is planning, and this time, they may not get away so easily...
