I know this! This is one of the fictional journals from the My Name is America series, The Journal of Patrick Seamus Flaherty. I am super impressed you were able to remember that much about it.

As a bit of extra bonus knowledge, his sister also has a journal from the same time period in the girl's Dear America series.

It might be Dead Water Zone, by Kenneth Oppel

>A well-realized world of rotting docks and ramshackle buildings on the shore of a polluted lake forms the setting for this haunting character study. Summoned by his brilliant but frail brother Sam, Paul leaves his comfortable suburban neighborhood for unsavory Watertown--and finds that both he and his brother are being hunted by the quasi-legal Cityweb: Sam has discovered a mutated microorganism in the lake that, though eventually toxic, greatly enhances physical ability. But despite plenty of danger, narrow scrapes, and a lurid, violent climax, outward events seem almost incidental compared to Paul's inner struggles. Once complacent in his role as protective older brother, he's angry to see Sam growing up and away from him and racked by guilt to feel so; his turmoil increases when he meets a new Sam--preternaturally fast and strong, exultantly freed from his former metabolic disorder. Oppel explores the brothers' dependent love-hate relationship with some sensitivity, though the confessional tone gets heavy at times. Glamorous but deadly, the microorganism is like a drug, so the story can be read on that level, too; indeed, Oppel adds a subplot involving a streetwise young Watertowner searching for her lake water-addicted mother. A thoughtful story with an unusual combination of ingredients

Number 2 sounds like this My America book.

Sounds vaguely like David Macula'y's "The Wat Things Work"

Can you give an approximate year of when you read this series?

Your description reminds me of Doomsday by John Peel.

Would it be Shade's Children by Garth Nix?

I vividly remember the part about the kids getting paired off each night. I think the goal was to repopulate the movement or something?

Seedfolks is about a vacant lot that begins with a young girl planting some beans and turns into a community garden through other residents perspectives.

I've read this before. Sounds similar but it has been a while since I read it.

Bonechiller by Graham McNamee? The female character Ash doesn't seem to be in the military and online descriptions don't go into the monster's weaknesses.
