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.

      This book is perfect for any ghost believer. Molly finds out that her step-sister, Heather, is making "friends" with a girl who has her initials! And crepier yet, the same history too! Heather's mom died in a fire, and so did Helen's family. The only difference is, Helen is dead! She ran into a small lake when her house burned down and drowned, she wants some new friends to stay with her, and Heather is her target! Does Molly save Heather? Does Helen's soul get freed? If you want to know, read "Wait Till Helen Comes".
