But they do—when Helen comes.
Wait till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn is a dark, creepy, twisted ghost story and more. Hahn also throws in the struggles of a newly blended family moving to the country and all the stress that that entails.
I have to say Heather was the perfect evil step-sister. I could feel Molly's frustration pour from the pages when Heather intentionally did things to cause a rift in the family.
While we only see glimpses of the ghost of Helen most of the time, Hahn made her a spooktacular ghoul that will have you second-guessing what you see in the night.
Wait till Helen Comes is a perfect MG Horror.
