A variation, the main character's parents keep telling them that they'll be able to leave the attic once the grandfather dies, but (Spoiler): one of the major twists of the book is that the grandfather died while they were in captivity and they were still not let out.

One of the most well-known elements of the book is the incestuous relationship between the main character Cathy and her older brother Christopher. We also learn the main character's mother was married to her half-uncle, causing her mother to abuse her and her father to shun her.

The main character's father dies in a car accident. We don't read about the accident itself, just the mother and her children learning about it.
