5 out of 5 stars
On my second trip back to high school with the Double Threat Crew I got to live another year vicariously through their eyes. Change is the theme of the second book in Julie Prestsater’s series and man is it hard. It’s sophomore year for the girls and with it comes a year of awkward. They aren’t the cute freshman anymore but they haven’t reached upperclassmen status yet either. Stuck in the in-between they learn to rely even more on each other and the friendships they’ve created.
Meg and Alex spent the summer in “new couple bliss” but now have the hard task of navigating a long distance relationship. Meg struggles with the separation as everyone around her is coupled up and ready to start a new year. A new guy, Travis, enters the picture and an undeniable attraction shakes her faith in her relationship with Alex. Away at college, Alex is finding it hard to balance his studies, his faraway girlfriend, and his new life. One bad decision on his part will threaten everything he has built at home. I was riveted as the two of them came to grips with the concept that sometimes love isn’t enough and that relationships take a lot of hard work to sustain them.
Prestsater is a master of the high school psyche. We are avid bystanders as they learn new life lessons, face new challenges, and mature as a result. They still have fun, do their fair share of partying, but they stick by each other and grow as a group in a way that makes me envious. As with the first book, each character is unique and brings his or her own flavor to the group. It’s amazing how Prestsater writes each of them so differently with such a large cast of characters and even though the book is from Meg’s perspective I got to spend adequate amounts of time with all of them.
Kudos to Prestsater for another job well done. I can’t wait to dive into their junior year and see what another year brings them!

Having fallen in love with Meggie and Alex in "So I'm A Double Threat", I was anxious to see where this adventure was going to take them and their friends. We were treated to the highs and lows of relationships, both romantic and platonic, and how each of the kids chose to deal with them.
Another fantastic story by a fantastic author. All I can say is bring on Part 3 because I want to know what happens next!!!

A Worthwhile Sequel!!!!!
Imagine my surprise when I saw there was a sequel to the amazingly written So I'm a Double Threat! I was floating on Cloud 9 when I found this one!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Picks up during sophomore year and things are once again different with this group of friends. Alex is in college so he and Meg are navigating that while there is a new boy at school that has his sights set on Meg. As the year progresses there is some loops thrown at the girls. There are broken hearts and laughs and tears. There is awkwardness and love and uncertainties. As you get older things change and that is no different for this lovable cast of characters.
Written just as amazingly as the first Julie Prestsater once again takes you on a remarkable journey that leaves you dying for the third book and wanting things to work out the way you see it happening in your head.

A Great All Around Read!
Double Threat My Bleep is a fun book for both teens and adults alike. Each book in this series keeps getting better, and I can't wait to see what happens to Meg and the gang. An all around realistic viewpoint of teenage life and dramas with a positive message for young women.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I LOVED this book! It was fun to be able to catch up with Meg and the girls to see how their Sophmore year was treating them! Julie does an AMAZING job with carrying the story, and making all the situations so believable!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Great Read...a little steamy ;)
Soooo excited to finally read Double Threat My Bleep. I read the 1st part of the series and I couldn't wait to see what happened next with Meg & Alex. And now...I hope the author hurries up and gets Double Threats Gone SLY out. Meg's 10th grade year was so fun, I couldn't put the thing down. Even read on my phone so I could finish it faster. So glad she still isn't talking to Amy (that B%$#@). I can't believe Alex, but Travis is funny. ;);) And OMG...Jon and Josh make me LMFAO! But I got a lil weepy with them. The Double Threat series is a must read!!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
