Twelve-year-old Molly and her 10-year-old brother, Michael, have never liked their younger stepsister, Heather. Ever since their parents got married, she's made Molly and Michael's life miserable. Now their parents have moved them all to the country to live in a house that used to be a church, with a cemetery in the backyard. If that's not bad enough, Heather starts talking to a ghost named Helen and warning Molly and Michael that Helen is coming for them. Molly feels certain Heather is in some kind of danger, but every time she tries to help, Heather twists things around to get her into trouble. It seems as if things can't get any worse.But they do - when Helen comes.

Love It!

This was one of my favorite books when I was in elementary school! I remember rereading it, so that I could feel the eerie suspense again and again. Now I am a teacher, and shared the book with my fifth and sixth grade students. They absolutely loved it! Even my male students, who are usually hard to motivate when it comes to reading, were hanging on each word!

I love this book

I loved this book as a little girl and I still do now. This author manages to put just the right amount of suspense and creepiness without making it to scary. I plan on my future kids and grandkids being able to pluck this book from my bookshelf and read it themselves one day. I can't wait to share it.
