Publisher's Summary

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.

Great for family listening

We listened to this on a family trip. All four of my kids, ages 6-13 loved it, and so did my husband and I! I liked the narrator, I thought it was appropriate because of the young sounding voice. The story is from the pov of a12 year old girl. Nicely done! Great story.

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.
