Good to Know...
Reviewed in the United States on November 23, 2017
It's good to know I'm not the only 30+ year-old on here still reading Mary Downing Hahn books. I've been following this author since the second grade. I never get tired of reading her novels (many of them more than once). Wait Till Helen Comes is a ghost story about a typical blended family. The family (mom, sister, and brother) is trying to adjust to a new move, a new stepfather, and a bratty little sister (with a secret of her own). The imagery is pretty good for the basic character plot Downing Hahn use however, some parts of the plot are pretty predictable. I did enjoy the small town people involvement, almost like everyone was in on the secret of the house. In addition, this is a great book for young adults to read because it has a message of acceptance, guilty conscience consequences, and real-life situations. It also deals with death in an understanding manner. Overall, still an enjoyable reading experience. I appreciate you for taking time out to read my review. I hope it is informative.
