"We Have Always Lived in the Castle" by Shirley Jackson. (You may have read her short story, "The Lottery" for a high school english class)
Shirley Jackson - most well known for her controversial short story "The Lottery." If you ever read and loved this story, I highly recommend checking out her other work. This woman could draw a frighteningly realistic portrait of the human psyche and psychosis that lurks within us all. That is why I love her!
