This had some suspenseful parts, but over all, it wasn't
as scary as I had hoped. The idea behind it was good, but
I feel the the stepfather Dave was a bit too 1 dimensional
and obtuse among other things. Also, some bits were a little confusing with all the running back and forth between the lake, Harper House, etc.
I would recommend Betty Ren Wright's Dollhouse Murders
over WTHC. It's a lot more suspenseful and worth rereading,
unlike this.

Format: Paperback
This is an amazingly well-crafted ghost story. Spooky without ever being really scary, it is a good read for anyone of any age.
Molly's mother has remarried, and the new family (including Molly's brother Michael and new step-sister, Heather) moves out to the countryside so that the parents can have studio space. Heather, however, is a horrible little brat that tries to make Molly and Michael's a nightmare. Since she is younger than Molly or Michael, and still hasn't gotten over her mother's death, Molly and Michael always get blamed. Even when Heather starts claiming that she can see a ghost named Helen, who is coming to get Molly...
I have a very low fear tolerance, especially as a child, and still can't watch horror movies (Christine scared the living daylights out of me as a teenage, and I couldn't sleep for days), but I still love this book. I re-read it every year on Halloween for years, and I still enjoy reading it. Any child, teenager, or adult who likes ghost stories should definately pick this one up.

Wait Till Helen Comes is my favorite book. It has to do with three kids named Molly, Micheal, Heather who just moved into an old church and formed it in to a house. Behind the house is a cementary where Heather finds a stone with her intials on it. She then meets Helen a beloved friend who only gives and brings her danger. Molly and Micheal try to help Heather but she is si wrapped up into Helen that she refuses and wants to be with Helen. Heather adn Helen are related in a way because both of their moms died in a fire. Helen makes heather do bad stuff and make her self look like she didn't do it. Helen tells Heather that she wants her to go away with her because she actually loved her but really she only wants Heather to die and be with her in the after world. She tells her to walk inot the lake and that soon they will be together. Molly comes just int time to save Heather and help Helen reunite with her parents and be happy. Helen leaves with her parents and Molly and Heather and Micheal go home and live happly ever after.

This book is a very good book and i really recommend it.I like the part when "Helen" comes into Heather's room and messes it up because Heather keeps following Molly to the graveyard.This is a VERY exciting book, and once you start reading it, you can't stop reading. It is the bestghost story I've ever read. I hope you read this book and like it as much as I do. You will definately enjoy this book because it is very discriptive and you always wonder what will happen next.

I first read this book about 15 years ago. I've probably read it at least 50 times. It wasn't a book - it was an experience. I mean, how often does this happen - a stranger comes up to you because you're holding a book, says they knew they had to talk to you when they saw it, you bond over it and go on to be friends for years. That's what kind of book this is...!
This is a scary book. I wouldn't go near anything or anyone with the name "Helen" or "Harper" for years. This book also got me started reading the other books by Mary Downing Hahn. Every time I went to a library or bookstore, I immediately looked for new books by her.
I know my paperback is around here someplace (I remember the library hardcover's much nicer cover illustration...) but I haven't read it in a while. However, little bits of it or certain phrases from it pop up for me now and then... I think the book got so ingrained in me that I don't even notice it! Parts of it were so vivid and (fittingly) haunting - the link between the girls' names, the ruins of the house, the damage done to Molly and Michael's rooms, the creek that wound around through the forest and near the graveyard before finally leading to Harper Pond. Thinking about it still gives me chills.
Excellent... I can't recomend it enough.

Do you like ghost stories, adventure and weird things? Then you would like Wait Till Helen Comes written by Mary Downing Hahn.
It's all about two girls, Molly and Heather, and a boy named Michael. They have to move to a church because Dave was going to marry their mom. They are not too happy about that. To add to the pain Dave is a new man in their mom's life. Dave's weird daughter, Heather, has to share a room with Molly and they hate each other. Heather's mom died in a freak fire accident near where they move.
After the move Heather explores her new ground and wanders behind the old church she finds an old graveyard. One particular tombstone caught her eye. It read H.E.H., Heather bonds with the ghost Helen. Is Helen her mom or just another mysterious ghost?
This ghost story is the best of its kind. I say it's for the ages of 9 to 12. This book is one of the best I hope you like it too.
