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...

"A powerful, convincing, and frightening tale...Ghost-story fans have a spooky treat in store." (School Library Journal Starred Review)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Ghost story I remember reading this book over and over again when I was in elementary school, probably between grades 5 and 7. This story used to intrigue me time after time and it was definitely one of the best children's ghost stories that I could find when I was younger and one of my favourites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A long time ago... I read this book when i was in grade 7, that has to be 11 years ago now, but i think it will always be one of my favourite books...it had me scared and then weeping by the end. I think it was the first time i had ever gotten so into one book! Ive read it sooo many times and i still have it on my bookshelf....for any kid who likes ghost stories, its a must...
