Mary Downing Hahn has a repertoire full of ghost stories, and they are all worth a read. This is the most recent book of hers that I have read, although it is actually one of her older titles. Hahn’s stories are just the right amount of creepy – enough for kids to get spooked, but not so scary that it will keep them up at night.
In Wait Till Helen Comes, Molly, Michael, and their new step-sister Heather, move into a new “home” that is really an old church. Heather has always been a difficult child since her mother died in a fire years ago, but moving to the church has made things much worse. She is always trying to get Molly and Michael in trouble, and now she seems to have a new accomplice – the ghost of a long-dead girl named Helen. Nobody except Molly believes that Heather is really seeing a ghost, so it is up to Molly to save her step-sister from the deadly plan Helen has in store.
