Twelve-year-old Molly and her ten-year-old brother, Michael, have never liked their seven-year-old stepsister, Heather. Ever since their parents got married, she's made Molly and Michael's life miserable. Now their parents have moved them all to the country to live in a house that used to be a church, with a cemetery in the backyard. If that's not bad enough, Heather starts talking to a ghost named Helen and warning Molly and Michael that Helen is coming for them. Molly feels certain Heather is in some kind of danger, but every time she tries to help, Heather twists things around to get her into trouble. It seems as if things can't get any worse.

But they do -- when Helen comes.

haven't read but excited

This is the best horror author I have ever read. I love this book sooooo much. It is a great book. You should definitely go look for it.

Wait Till Helen Comes brings me a delightful shiver every time I read it! I really like the author Mary Downing Hahn because she writes kid's ghost stories. Molly and Michael live with their terrible new stepsister, Heather. When their parents move out into the woods, things turn from bad to worse. Molly is sure something supernatural is up: how couldn't there be, they live next to a graveyard! Then Molly has the most horrifying experience in her life: she watches Heather become best friends with a ghost. She tries to help Heather, but the master of the mouth always makes it look like Molly is hurting her! One night things go too far: the house is in ruins, and then Heather turns up missing! Where did she go? The only way to know: to read the book! --BKS

This is a bone-chilling goodie, too. Everything I love in a ghost story: creepy little girls, hidden graves, faces in windows, crumbling ruins in the woods, even a dark and murky pond. Brrrrr!! A bit dated, but none-the-less, a gem of a read right before Halloween
