This book is as scary for adults as it is for younger readers! WAIT TILL HELEN COMES has all the ingredients of a great creepy read: ghosts, evil stepsisters, and a house in the country that was once an old church. Molly doesn’t trust her stepsister Heather, who is always getting Molly and her brother Michael into trouble. But when Heather begins talking to a ghost named Helen, warning her step-siblings about certain danger, things get worse. That is, until Helen comes! A truly scary read that’s excellently written to boot.
