Jackson, Shirley._We have always lived in the castle._Penguin,
1984 [0-14-007107-5]
Merricat and her sister, Constance live in the family estate with
Uncle Julian.  The rest of the family died when some arsenic was
put in the family sugar bowl.  Now Constance has been acquitted
of the crime but the entire town thinks they are all monsters, the
town weirdos so the small family lives isolated in the big house.
One day Uncle Charles shows up until the house catches on fire
and the community gets to once again vent its anger against the
family.  This 214 page book deals with a family living within the
hatefulness of a community. [I read this book because a 7th grade
teacher in our school asked me to get it for the library.]
