Wait Till Helen Comes book. Wait Till Helen Comes is an interesting book. I think it might have scared me, as a child
Wait Till Helen Comes book. Heather is such a whiny little brat . 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. I think it might have scared me, as a child. It deals heavily with death, some twisted forms of manipulation from a ghost, and multiple people dying in fires.

Feeling frustrated that they didn't have any of my go to authors, I began perusing the shelves and came across a book called Time of the Witch by Mary Downing Hahn.
By Mary Downing Hahn. 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
Beware of Helen...
Heather is such a whiny little brat. Always getting Michael and me into trouble. But since our mother married her father, we're stuck with her...our "poor stepsister" who lost her real mother in a mysterious fire.
But now something terrible has happened. Heather has found a new friend, out in the graveyard behind our home -- a girl named Helen who died with her family in a mysterious fire over a hundred years ago. Now her ghost returns to lure children into the pond...to drown! I don't want to believe in ghosts, but I've followed Heather into the graveyard and watch her talk to Helen. And I'm terrified. Not for myself, but for Heather...
