About the book:
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.
In fact, there's a whisper of menace behind increasing levels of poltergeist activity all over town. After a large-scale paranormal assault on Julie's high school, her mother falls victim to the spell Endless Night. Now it's a race against time to find out who is responsible or Julie won't just lose her mother's soul, she'll lose her mother's life.
"Poltergeeks" is a fast, fun, and easy to read story.
At the beginning, I wasn't too keen on Julie. She really irritated me. She was whiny and impulsive. But the more I read, the less I noticed the little nuisances in her character and was able to enjoy the story more.
The story has a fast pace and doesn't dwell on just one part of the story too long which didn't make it boring for me. Also, the explanations of the paranormal events happening are simple and straight to the point, unless Betty is giving them that is. This makes them easy to follow and understand.
There's a few curse words in the story, but what teenager doesn't use them nowadays? Plus, they were used sparingly.
Overall, I think the book is great for younger teens or to enjoy in a moment of boredom.
