Oh my gosh, I just cried my eyes out over this one. I LOVE Mary Downing Hahn and this was yet another great story. Georgie and Diana are such sweet little souls and I can’t understand why they live in the woods without any parents. Until the truth is revealed about who they really are. Their connection to the Old Willis house is slowly revealed through the story and it’s quite a heartbreaking one. Georgie and Diana have always had very strict rules they follow, but when Lissa, a girl the same age as Diana shows up with her father, things change. Lissa’s dad will be the new caretaker of the old house and Diana is drawn to her. She wants a friend so bad after all these years, but the rules don’t allow it. But one day she decides to break the rules and everything changes for Georgie and Lissa. The truth will finally set them free from the rules, but are they brave enough to tell the truth?… (altro)

Omg, I was incredibly excited to read this and did so in one sitting. “Wait Till Helen Comes” is one of my childhood favorites and I did not realize these amazing books are being made into graphic novels. it was so fun to read this book but also a little sad. Seeing the story of the bad ones unfold was touching but also heartbreaking. Knowing that Ada wont be able to hurt them anymore was some sweet justice, seeing as how she was taken down. And watching the two grandkids grow from mischievous to saviors of local history, was awesome. Not your typical summer vacation!… (altro)

I loved Mary Downing Hahn books as a child. She has a way of writing horror that can scare the Jesus out of a child, but not so much that they don’t continue to love the genre. This graphic novel does an OK job. It is better than other books in the graphic novel Hahn books. The graphic novels are very wordy and long. Sometimes they’re a pain to get through. This one wasn’t a pain, but one felt every page. I’m also not a big fan of the art style. It works with the books, but I don’t find it complements the story. Overall, I do like this book because I like the original it’s based on. If not for that, I might not suggest this to other readers.… (altro)

I guess I start a dnf shelf now? This book would have been interesting if I was family but as it was it was just a collection of stories of someone I didn’t know. They gave a small glimpse into what life was like, but not like the classic children’s historical fiction such as Little House, Lois Lenski books or Ralph Moody. For that reason it isn’t worth my shelf space as there are simply better books out there.
