Wait Till Helen Comes: A Ghost Story - Mary Downing Hahn

I already dislike the little sister, Heather, and the parents. I realize that Heather has some issues and her father is doing absolutely nothing to help her through them, but she's a brat. And I dislike that Molly and Michael's mom let them think they were going to do the enrichment program and Science Club over the summer and then just uprooted the family without warning. She made it even worse by lying to them about how isolated their new home would be. Would it have hurt to let the kids know they were house hunting? Or did she and her new husband seriously just buy a place out of the blue, without thinking about anything except "we can do our art here"?
