I absolutely loved this book! So, so good to see Meggie, Alex, and all their friends again! This was yet another fabulous addition to the Double Threat series!!! Just as with the first two books in the series, this one gets a "DOUBLE" thumbs-up!
Loved it from start to finish! Love seeing all the Crew back together and having some fun while they each continue to grow. This was exact what Double Time should have been. Loved the seeing my favorite teachers from Against The Wall. The new character, Andi was a great addition to the Crew!
“Double Time” (Double Threat #3) by Julie Prestsater 5 out of 5 stars SLY!!! Calling all single ladies! It’s Single Ladies Year at Carver High! The girls of the Double Threat Crew have decided they need to branch out! Jonathan has moved away leaving Keesha lonely. Dominic and Stephanie have called it quits now that he has graduated. Alex and Meg decided that their long distance relationship was too hard. As they start their junior year, the girls want something new. Having been in serious relationships they want nothing more than to play the field and just date. Sounds easy enough…until it’s not! It’s adventure after adventure or should I say disaster after disaster for each of them! I liked that Prestsater gave them a chance to see what else was out there. It only serves to validate their feelings for the Double Threat guys and strengthen the bonds between them. It would have been easy to go with the status quo and totally plausible, but that could have made the third book in the series seem stale and lackluster. Instead she breathes new life into an already great series with fresh new experiences and a realistic approach to dating. I really enjoyed the growing friendship between Meg and Ben in this book. Always one of my favorite characters, it was great to see Ben really become a rock for Meg without any of the normal boy/girl dynamics to throw it off. What blossoms between them is an awesome brother/sister deep friendship that is a nice juxtaposition of her relationships with the girls. I was proud of Ben, along with the rest of the group, for the decisions he made and those decisions further reiterated how smart of a writer Prestsater is. Her books are realistic and the experiences of her characters are true to life. Once again, I can whole-heartedly recommend this book! Prestsater has her finger on the heartbeat of high school life. It’s a great read for teenagers and adults alike. She has set the bar pretty high and I’m anxiously awaiting their senior year! *I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.* Shannon
These series of books are great for tweens and young teenagers to read. I also think a good read for parents with children about to enter high school. Their experiences are so realistic and I'm sure many teenagers experience the partying, drinking, sexual tension, etc...just as these characters. Great way to have a dialogue about some of the important, but potentially hard to discuss topics with your young teen. It's also a cute story
I loved this book! Who am I kidding, I've loved this whole series so far and we've still got more to go! :) Double Time was about transistion for our fearless group and while they handled it, they were forced to make some tough decisions, were put in positions they weren't expecting and they learned that while sometimes you think the grass might be greener on the other side, what you had might not have been all that bad either. Megan, Keesha and Steph's bid to have a single ladies year might not have panned out exactly as they had expected, but they grew along the way as did Travis, Josh, Jon and Alex and so in the end I think it sets them up for the senior year they have all been dreaming of. Double Time was exactly what I had hoped it to be and it certainly didn't let me down...it left me wanting part four now! Julie Prestsater has done an amazing job with this series and I know that we are in for a treat when we get to experience senior year with our favorite group!
