Creepy and enticing

What an interesting story! This started a bit slow, but quickly wicked me in. It is reminiscent of Something Wicked This Way Comes. It is a story of a boy on the edge of becoming an adult, this allowing him to remember his missing brother and to go and find him and all of the other missing children.
