Poltergeeks by Sean Cummings
15-year-old Julie Richardson is about to learn that being the daughter of a witch isn't all it's cracked up to be. When she and her best friend, Marcus, witness an elderly lady jettisoned out the front door of her home, it's pretty obvious to Julie there's a supernatural connection.

I made the mistake of pausing Poltergeeks and starting another book. Now I can’t make myself get back to read it. I’m not in the mood. I’m not motivated enough. It’s just that stupid. Whatever.
Poltergeeks is not my kind of book. The story is cheesy and clichéd. The heroine, Julie, is a brat that sounds like a thirty-year-old woman. She is special, and, most importantly, she is a moron. Julie has a BFF, Marcus, who secretly has a crush on her. Her girlfriend hits on her BFF because she’s that evil. Her girlfriend might just be the villain in the book. I have no wish to find out if this is true or not.
The bottom line, Poltergeeks is horrible and the title is overly misleading. If you’re looking for a fun and witty read, then avoid this one. It will only manage to dry up your brain cells.
