Wait till Helen Comes
2nd Quarter Book Project By Lily Welch
Michael: a 10 year old boy who isn't afraid of anything. He is very adventures and loves going deep into the woods. He thinks all of the ghost nonsense is crazy, well, until Helen comes.
Heather: Molly and Michael's younger stepsister that is always finding a way to get then in trouble. She is always complaining to her dad that Molly and Michael did something wrong when it was all her fault. She never had many friends, until she meet Helen.
Mom: Molly and Michael's mother.
Dave: Heather's dad that believes every lie that Heather tells him which caused him not to like Molly and Michael.
Helen: A ghost that is about the same age of Heather. She died in a fire beside her mom and dad. She is Heather's new best friend.
The book starts out as two families becoming one, but it is not good. Molly and Michael’s mom is getting married to a guy with a daughter named Heather. Molly and Michael do not like Heather. She is always whining and blaming them for every little thing. When Molly and Michael’s mom breaks the news that they will be moving with Heather and Dave, tensions rise.
A few days after they get settled into their new house (which is actually a church), the kids discover a grave yard. While they were exploring, one gravestone stood out to them. Molly, Michael, and Heather looked at it closer to see the initials H.E.H, which is Heather’s initials. After doing more research, they found out the girl that died was Heather’s aged and died in a fire, just like Heather's mom did. They were all a little spooked.
One day, Molly discovered that Heather was talking to someone. She looked around the corner to see a ghost. It was Helen. Heather and Helen became each other’s new best friend. Every day, they would meet under the tree and talk for hours. Molly knew something bad was going to happen.
One night, Molly woke up and discovered Heather wasn't in her bed. She ran outside and saw Heather and Helen walking into the pond. Heather seemed happy because Helen said that soon, they will be together forever. Molly ran into the lake and fought for Heather the hardest she had ever fought before . Finally, Helen gave up and left forever. Heather was mad at Molly for taking away her best friend, but soon realized what Helen was trying to do. Now, Molly and Heather weren't just sisters, but best friends.
