Dark Companion by Marta Acosta... ok I thought I already posted this but accidentally put my review thingy for it on fallen! But this book was absolutely wonderful. At first it reaaaaaally freaked me out. Like freaky. But it was actually really good and once I got further into the book and the off putting stuff was explained I loved it even more! Great ending also :)
