This one also gets a half star - so 3 1/2 stars.

Poltergeeks takes us into the world of a Canadian teenage witch named Julie. Julie and her best friend and fellow geek Marcus are fundraising when they run into a poltergeist at old lady Mrs. Gilbert's house. Thinking her amateur witchcraft can handle a simple, non-malicious poltergeist, Julie takes action. However, Julie quickly finds out that this is way over her head.

I'm not going to say I really loved this book, nor would I say I disliked it. It's worthwhile to read. I feel like a lot of the book is cliched though. Inexperienced witch thinks she can take on the big, bad spirit. Only live parent gets horribly injured because of said inexperienced witch. Best friend has feelings for her. I wasn't really a big fan of Julie at times though. She's kind of selfish, arrogant, and at times, just plain annoying.

There are some pretty unique parts to the story though. I'd have to say I really liked Betty, the appointed guardian slash immortal spirit. Marcus was a really likeable character too. The actual poltergeist events were very well written and detailed.

Thank you to Angry Robot and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this :)
