    Robin decides to take up a part-time job at the wealthy Swanson family mansion as she’s desperate for some extra cash. It seems simple enough, all Robin needs to do is rearrange all the books that had belonged to Lilith - who’d recently committed suicide. But after a series of strange events at the house, is Lilith retuning from beyond the grave to give her daughter Claudia a warning?

I’m certain that this was one of the few Point Horrors that I’d not read before, so I was really hooked by the mystery. I liked how the book teased the supernatural element, but with the Point Horror formula I know that this wasn’t the case. I was certainly invested enough to want to know who was behind it all!

    Well, this is another one I that I didn't read when it first came out. I don't think I would have liked it as a kid either. This book was too all over the place and that ending was a bit odd since I think that Cusick is leaning towards a love triangle or something.

This book was too all over the place and that ending was a bit odd since I think that Cusick is leaning towards a love triangle or something. Once again this one is more adult than I was thinking of for the time it was written (1993). We have a character threatening to rape the main character a few times. We also have once again a parent that is missing in action throughout this book. I swear I should do a YA horror cheat sheet. Do you have a parent that is never around when some scary stuff is going down? You may be about to be murdered. Once again a good example of the "Fear Street" square for Halloween Bingo 2019. "Help Wanted" follows teenager Robin. Robin is looking to make some extra money and then responds to a help wanted ad that is up at her school. When she goes to the interview she is shocked to find that the new job is at Manorwood that has been a long abandoned mansion in the town. However, it has recently been occupied again by the uber rich Swanson family. The family's elderly patriarch is who is looking for help cataloging some books from the dead second wife of his son. Robin though quickly realizes that something is wrong at Manorwood and that someone seems intent on causing harm to Claudia, step-sister to Parker Swanson. And Parker seems intent on warning Robin off and saying that Claudia is just crazy, just like her mother. So Robin didn't really do a lot of investigating. Just running from scene to scene screaming Claudia's name. The book sparks up a bit IMHO when she is dealing with her friend Faye. Faye though disappears about halfway through the book and we just have Robin dealing with the Swanson family and another new book in town, Walt. Walt is enigmatic and seems to be around to just say random phrases and disappears again. I really didn't like Parker at all and thought he definitely had some issues with his whole grabbing Robin anytime he wanted to thing and starting intently into her eyes and telling her what a mess Claudia was. Claudia is a scared rabbit through the whole book and one wonders how she managed to dress herself and get through the day. The parents in this book are missing. We do get a sighting of Robin's mom when she pops up to tell Robin to bring in the groceries. Parker's step-mother is dead, we find out his mother died in a car accident. His father is...somewhere? Business trip? I don't even remember. The mystery of the book really is about who is out there scaring Claudia? Claudia believe her dead mother is now haunting her and wants Claudia to join her in death. Robin is determined to figure out what is going on and then starts to become scared when she it appears that something paranormal is going on. The ending though was definitely a surprise. I thought I knew who was doing things and why and turned out to be wrong. I do have to say though that I thought the book ended on a weird note. And I ask again, what happened to Faye?

Andrews style gothic family drama and while it had its moments I did find it a bit lacking. I did like the character of Robin, the mystery element and the obligatory Point Horror love interests. Overall it was a fun read but not quite as good as some of RTC's others such as Trick or Treat and Fatal Secrets.

    I liked this book a lot. It's quite different to the other Cusick books I've read - for one thing, Robin's mother isn't entirely absent, although we don't see her much - and there's more of a "normal" background than in books like Trick or Treat or Teacher's Pet. It is still a good read, though, with that creepy gothic feeling that Ms Cusick does so very well. Robin, reserved and introverted class brain, applies for a job cataloguing books in a personal library. She's a little hesitant, because t I liked this book a lot.

It is still a good read, though, with that creepy gothic feeling that Ms Cusick does so very well. Robin, reserved and introverted class brain, applies for a job cataloguing books in a personal library. She's a little hesitant, because the job happens to be at Manorwood, a decaying gothic mansion that is home to Parker Swanson - the confident, arrogant hottie who just started at school - and his fragile blossom of a stepsister, Claudia. Worse, the books that are to be catalogued belong to Claudia's dead mother, a medium (and reported witch, or something that rhymes with it) who killed herself some months back. Someone is trying to terrorise Claudia, and bleeding-heart that Robin is, she's determined to protect her, even when Robin herself starts seeing phantoms in the bathtub and getting threatening notes tacked to her door. Claudia thinks it's her mother, haunting her from beyond the grave. Robin thinks there's a more prosaic meaning. Parker just thinks Claudia's a fruit loop. What's the truth? The truth, or at least my subjective version of the truth, is that this is a pretty good book. It's probably at the lower end of the 4-star area, rather than the higher end the way The Lifeguard was, but still deserves a 4-star rating IMO. Robin is an interesting heroine, although I'd have liked to delve a bit deeper into her character - but I don't really expect to be able to in a 200-odd page book. I like that she's bookish and quiet; I find the bookish quiet heroines hold my interest much more than the party-girl ones. Parker could have been a bit more drawn out; I don't feel like we got enough of him, and he had a whole lot of potential. Ditto for Walt. Claudia is the one who really steals the show - she's a beautifully-written, very convincing portrayal of a wounded-flower girl who isn't quite sure if she's sane or not. The plot is nicely twisty, as most of Ms Cusick's stories are. Particularly young readers might find it hard to keep their attention on the book - while I started reading Point Horror at 8 or 9, I preferred Stine and Hoh and didn't really appreciate the subtlety of Cusick until I was 13 or 14. The only thing I wasn't keen on with this book was the way Robin treated Parker. She really seemed to dislike him, and we were never given any concrete reason why. Oh, she thought he was arrogant, and he was, but he was always nice to her, and I'd have liked to see a couple of scenes that let them get closer together. Cusick writes her romantic - or sometimes just creature comfort - scenes in such a beautiful way that my heart feels all prickly during them, and I'd like to have seen more of them here. Or maybe just more Parker. Parker was hot. I do have a thing for those arrogant-but-good-hearted blonds. :) Verdict: Nice juxtaposition of the chilling and the comforting. A wonderfully twisted read.

    Rating: 4 of 5 Help Wanted was among the many Point Horror books I read in the early 90s, between the ages of 12 to 15.

(These books will likely fall short for anyone who's already dabbled in adult dark fiction or film.) The horror elements are mild, for the most part, and some of the teenager-y behavior may seem a little outdated. But other than that, these are great fun! Note: My rating is based on what I remember from 20+ years ago and, of course, includes a fair share of sentimentality.

Fit Gothic in every way except there was also High School and YA genre. The heroine was a bit of an issue - she was TOO nervous at the first half and seemed especially moody to all of the male gender, sometimes to an irrational degree. I was happy with the ending and being originally right in my earlier suspicions. Sometimes the melodrama was draining and overly done, to where it hurt pacing and interest, but it wasn't bad - especially if you like Gothics.

    Very strange in Point Horror terms as it has a real threat of sexual violence, and the main character is convinced there's something genuinely paranormal happening. More complex than most, and definitely enjoyable.

    I would have taken the blurb from Goodreads like I normally do, but it was just outright wrong. So I got it directly from the source. HELP WANTED is a book that’s halfway to being the ridiculous cheese of RL Stine, but it’s also half-grounded in something resembling reality. Robin appears to be a rather level-headed, somewhat well-rounded, character that comes off as genuine and like a real human being. So does her friend Walt. Not a whole lot of drama or hyperbole going on with either of them, a I would have taken the blurb from Goodreads like I normally do, but it was just outright wrong.

Robin appears to be a rather level-headed, somewhat well-rounded, character that comes off as genuine and like a real human being. So does her friend Walt. Not a whole lot of drama or hyperbole going on with either of them, all things considered. Parker is an egotistical jerk that Robin puts in his place time and time again and luckily doesn’t fall for his crap at all. And her alleged best friend Faye is just a stuck up, drama queen bitch. Not sure how her and Robin are even friends, they’re so opposites. And Faye isn’t even that appealing as a human. Completely self-centered and not all that supportive of Robin, Robin would have been wise to ditch this one years ago. Luckily Faye just kind of falls off the map halfway into the book, probably because Cusick realized she was kind of a twit. The story itself was compelling and while I wasn’t buying the supernatural slant that kept getting spun, I did keep trying to figure out who was behind what and what exactly was going on. I didn’t see the ending coming, which is awesome with these books because even I can see them from a million miles away. It was also kind of nice the way it ended, rather atypical without giving away any spoilers. Of course, what would cheesy old school YA horror be without a couple of ridiculous deaths? You get a solid three of them within the pages of the book, four if you want to count the stepmother, but that’s off-page. Cusick doesn’t have the ridiculous and absurd creatively with deaths that Stine does, but there’s some literal backstabbing and crawling maggots happening. So kudos for that. One of the truer thriller books coming out of that era, and some of the more level-headed, HELP WANTED lands closer to the top in terms of re-readability and standing the test of time. Most of the characters (at least those that matter) aren’t caricatures of real people and the drama isn’t so over the top that it comes off as absurd. Robin and Walt are great characters that are actually relatable and the ending has a good twist. I really can’t ask for much more when it comes to these books! 4

    I keep saying this, but I am just so thrilled that my library has a bunch of these teen horror classics available to check out as e-books, since they purged all the hard copies. (Now, if only they would get e-books from Fear Street, Terror Academy and Nightmare Hall!) I remembered the cover of this book vividly, but the actual story itself not so much.

    Point Horrors are always good for a quick burner to top up the yearly Reading Challenge. Help Wanted does embody the definition of a good point horror, but I always finish them thinking they'd be better as a screen play, so as to end up with the inevitable Netflix Original series...this aside I enjoyed the story, and the characters had their macabre based personalities ranging from demented janitors to high school jocks.

    The only thing that kept me going with this one was the mystery of who did it. I actually finished this a few weeks ago and sadly already I forget a lot of what happened. I do remember that I didn't like the character interactions because they felt to forced or out of place and I was surprised at the ending. All in all I don't think this was her best work, I think so far this is the one that I have enjoyed the least. The only thing that kept me going with this one was the mystery of who did it.

    Now having read several of Richie Tankersley Cusick, some back to back. Specifically, This book is similar to April Fools but has similar tropes of having a single mum and non-existent father, with a best friend who abandons you for boys while all the dangerous stuff is happening. Also odd love triangles involving a bad guy/red herring.

    I appreciate the melodrama, but not the stupidity of the characters. I read this because it was included in the reading list for season 5 of ‘Teenage Scream’. A podcast that lovingly or fondly (it depends on who’s doing the intro) dissects the best and worst of 90’s teen horror, with hosts Heather Parry and Kirsty Logan. Definitely worth a listen.

This would have been like a taster version of gothic lit/psychological thriller!

RTC is a fine enough writer for her audience, however this one was just more of the same and definitely shows that this was a later book in the series- I think there was a definite downward trajectory in the quality of writing in the PH series as time went went on. Not anywhere near the standard of Trick or Treat, or even April Fool's, which this book very much reminds me of.

It’s been many years since I’ve read a Richie Tankersley Cusick novel. She was one of my favorite teen authors, and I even remember rushing home from the bookstore to dive into this one. I like the concept it’s your typical teenage point horror thriller with just enough action to keep you guessing till the very end. The characters are great I felt I was really able to connect with Robin. I liked the twist at the end I honestly didn’t see it coming but it works. A quick fast paced story that captures the heart as well as the imagination. I can’t wait to re-read more of her books as I enjoyed this one so much.

There was one thing different about this re-read though, I realised how annoying the main character, Robin, really is. I don't know, maybe it's just her naivety, but I couldn't help yelling at her throughout most of the book. She's also way stubborn and easily scared, but that's partly why I love the book so much, if the main character had been more like Walt maybe nothing interesting would have happened. It should also be noted that Herk is totally awesome and I'd forgotten how much I adore his character.

    I found it very enjoyable, it even gave me some scares which I found fantastic. The novel was a thrilling and captivating tale that kept me refraining from putting it down, it not only has all the good making of a proper scare but also an ending that leaves you wanting more and is somewhat surprising to the tale. I would absolutely recommend it for some scares but also a great twist.

    Huge fan of Richie Tankersley Cusick. This book is creative and despite how I am someone who is usually quick to solve the mysteries, this book kept me guessing until the very end. The book was also paced really well and the pace really picks up toward the end.
