Help for the Haunted was incredibly eerie novel with creative characters that I could surprisingly relate to. I really enjoyed reading it; it was a true page-turner. As the story progressed, I started to really like Sylvie but I grew to despise her sister. I didn't know anything about Help for the Haunted when I began it, and I think that's the best way to start reading this book. It begins with the story of Sylvie and the murder of her parents, mixed with exciting flashbacks. It's a must read!--Isabella Scarpelli '15
