Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, and a little creepy... 18-year old Mary Katherine (Merricat), her sister Constance, and their Uncle Julian live in a big house close to a village. However, Julian is not well, and Constance never leaves the property, which leaves Merricat to get groceries in the village once a week. Unfortunately for her, she and her family are either shunned or bullied by the villagers. This started off really strong for me. I didn't like the middle quite as much, but it also ended on a high note. Had it kept up on the stronger note all the way through, I would have rated it higher and it could have been in contention for a favourite for the year. However, it was still very good. A little creepy and more and more secrets were revealed as the book went on...
