Witch and Wizard Series by James Patterson
This is in no way able to compete with the Harry Potter series, but if you are a Harry Potter fan, this teen series might entice you. I did read the whole series, but I thought the first book was by far the best. It was creative and a new author for me, but I felt like the cheese factor was just too great to get into the rest of the series. Quick reads, and I kept pursuing them hoping for something big, but I felt like it kind of fizzled out. Good weekend trip read, but the more you read, the goofier it gets. I would recommend the first book--the rest, I could have lived without.
