The Grin (a paranormal tale)
When Cassie Ingersoll gets a last-minute babysitting call on Christmas Eve, she's tempted to blow it off. But extra money would be nice, and maybe Christmas won't be such a meager affair after all. Her problems begin almost immediately: a dead car battery, a house in the middle of nowhere, a storm brewing. Then, a mysterious warning: Don't feed the boy. She should have paid attention.
