This is what John has to say about the connection between his book and Matilda: "Matilda and HELP FOR THE HAUNTED are each stories about a young girl who loves books, is smart beyond her years, and must rely on her intelligence and curiosity in order to set things right in her world."
In HELP FOR THE HAUNTED, fifteen-year-old Sylvie Mason isn't sure who murdered her parents that winter night, but she knows she can't stop looking until she knows the truth. Sylvie pursues the mystery, moving closer to the knowledge of what occurred that night, as she comes to terms with her family's past and uncovers secrets that have haunted them for years. Rose, Sylvie's sister, seems to have a secret of her own - did she murder her own parents? A frightening and mysterious ghost story that you won't be able to put down until you're done.
