The DeVouring by Simon Holt

Reggie tries to be a typical teenager, but since her mom ran away and her dad buried himself in work, she has become responsible for her younger brother Henry as well.

One night, she decides to read to him from a journal she found, written in the 70s. The story is told by a young girl whose brother is possessed by what she calls the Vours. They come to you when you are the most fearful, and on Winter Solstice.

Reggie doesn't believe in the Vours, but Henry does. Then things start to happen--especially to Henry--that make Reggie rethink her earlier decision.

A great horror story. I'm sure there will be a sequel down the road.
