In this fun-filled, fast-moving young adult novel, sassy fourteen-year-old Megan Miller, and her close-knit friends, begin their four year high school journey. Expectations and hopes are high for their Freshman year. Meggie wants nothing more than to experience all high school has to offer - growing freedom, hot boys, parties, make-out sessions, and did I mention hot boys?

Enter Alex Aguilar. At seventeen, he is Carver High's sports superstar and dreamy superstud. Yet, despite the hype, Alex is undeniably sweet, and Meggie is beyond smitten. But, of course, he is a SENIOR. So, ought to be completely off limits for a ninth grader, right?

Age doesn't always dictate whom you will love, though. So I'm A Double Threat is the start of their journey. Will young love survive the challenges presented them or is friendship all they can only really hope for? Backs will be stabbed, hearts will be broken, tears will be shed. But, despite this, Meggie's strong-willed determination, loyalty, and zest for fun, will ensure the ride is a memorable one.

(This book has mature content intended for older young adult audiences.)

My Summary: Megan is starting her freshman year off with a bang. She smart, popular, and knows how to fun. When she and her friends get invited to a Senior party, she meets Alex. Meg thinks she's found the guy of her dreams. The problem is, Alex wants Meg's friend Amy. As Meg's freshman years goes on, she learns the tough reality of what life is like when you get to high school. Friendships change, there is more pressure from boys, and peer pressure becomes more difficult to avoid. Does Meg learn how to balance it all and can she get Alex to see her as more than a friend? My Take: I really flew through reading this book. What I liked the most about the story is that it deals with some very real high school situations. Meg had to learn that friendships change due to boys and other pressures like drugs. I think she had certain expectations on how things would be in high school and quickly learned that she couldn't determine the outcome. Meg's character was easy to identify with. While the story does focus on the relationship she develops with Alex, it's really more about dealing with personal changes as you get older. Meg witnessed a friend doing drugs and another friend becoming sexually active. Those are both very real pressures in high school and I felt that Meg handled both situations maturely. She knew herself well enough to know she wasn't going to succumb to that pressure. Overall, it was a pleasant read. As I said, I read it quickly and it held my attention. It's a great coming of age story for a YA reader. Adult readers would definitely identify as well. I'm interested to see how the series progresses. The series goes through each year of high school for Meg and the challenges she faces each year. I look forward to seeing how Meg and the gang manage their sophomore year!

Welcome to High School- The Best Years Of Your Life- right? What I Loved: As pathetic as it sounds, I loved how a main character named Megan got the lovable nickname Meggie. So adorable! It also must be said that Julie Prestsater writes so incredibly transparently that oftentimes I was reminded of my own journal I kept on and off through high school. I really felt like I was in Megan's head, and I could just feel her emotions so viscerally while reading her story. What I Didn't Like: Quite frankly, the "transparent" writing that I referred to aboveseemed a little too much like a teenager's journal at the beginning of the book. It felt as though I was constantly in this teen's head, hearing her every thought about what was happening and the people there, but with no real clue as to the story. This wore off probably 15% into the book, and I really did enjoy the rest of it. Also, in that first 15% or so (and a little bit later, but it stopped bugging me so much) I really was stuck trying to figure out whether I felt like the character is "in high school" or " only 14." I think this is the first time I really felt old as a person- because the oldster in me had some issues with some of the happenings in Megan's life- saying that a 14-year-old shouldn't be thinking/experiencing this or that. When I thought of her as a "highschooler," though, all such censoring tendencies went away. Suffice it to say, if you have a problem with stuff that real teens do deal with- drugs, alcohol, and sex, you'd probably want to skip this book. But I don't advise that course of action at all. My Overall Review As stated earlier in the review, I did have some issues with this book. At some point, however, it turned into a page turner that I couldn't put down. Seriously. I was going to go to sleep around 50% of the way through the book at 3am but I just had to read "a little bit more" and next thing I knew, I was on the last sentence and it was 5:40am. And before I went to sleep, I found myself emptying my Paypal account so I could secure book two in this series, Double Threat My Bleep... despite the fact that I won't be able to read that for a very long time. I think in the end what makes this story so great is the honesty in which Megan tells her story. While the reader does spend a lot- and I do mean a lot- of the first part of the book in Megan's head, at some point Megan starts to see outside her own thoughts, and she then tells a story that is gripping and will keep your interest all the way to the end. I most certainly cannot wait to read the second book. This book was provided for me at no charge, nor was I given compensation of any kind for this review. This review only reflects my personal opinion.

I absolutely adored this story! It came highly recommended to me from a good friend and she has never led me astray when it comes to recommending books and her track record is still intact! While this story is about a group of freshman girls and how they adapt not only to high school, but to boys, both being friends with boys & crushing on them, it also deals with the pitfalls that all teens deal with as they grow older, drugs, sex, relationships and making good decisions. It's light-hearted, fun and it has characters that you want to cheer for and you empathize with at times as well. Julie Prestater did a fantastic job with this story and I would recommend this to anyone that wants a great story that will leave you clamoring to read the follow up "Double Threat My Ble

What to say about this book?!?! I mean really, what can I say about a book that makes me smile months after reading it! I loved it, just completely loved it. I had had my NOOK for only a few months when I started to get into reading YA books. Anyway I was scanning the books available when I came across So I'm a Double Threat. The subject seemed interesting enough and the price couldn't be beat so I got it. Well THANK GOODNESS I DID! This book was seriously awesome! It has everything a good YA book should have to keep a reader interested. You start with a core group of girls that are best friends and starting their freshman year. They are nervous and excited and aware of the fact that things are going to change...and change they do. Instead of it being just them, boys get added to the mix and then everything is different. They all of a sudden find themselves having to navigate through not only the pressures of school but back stabbing, crushes, fights, uncertainties and Moms that are obsessed with NKOTB(not that I can blame them! :-)) and Ryan Seacrest. As time progresses they find their groove and their place, but things are forever different. As there are many characters in this amazing story of growing up, Meg and Alex are my favorites. They start as uncertain acquaintances, morph into friends and then go from there. Watching all the shifts in their relationship was so fun and nerve wracking and left me wanting more and still does. Julie Prestsater crafted such an amazing story that I instantly fell in love and makes me want more. And honestly sometimes makes we wish I was back in high school. I said sometimes. ;-) A definite must read! Do it! You won't be disappointed!

I'm not sure why I didn't like So I'm a Double Threat. Possibly because it reminded me of the very worst parts of high school. Possibly because none of the characters were likable. Really. None of them. Not one person in this book is someone I would like to hang out with, especially not if I were in high school. Alex gets an "almost likable", but that's pretty much it. I feel like I must have missed something because this book got such great reviews on Goodreads, but I'm not going to reread to see what it was.

“So I’m A Double Threat” by Julie Prestsater 5 out of 5 stars Sign me up for Carver High! I want to hang out with Meg, Alex, and the rest of the Double Threat Crew! The first book in Julie Prestsater’s Double Threat series, “So I’m A Double Threat”, has it all. Inside it’s pages you’ll find drama, romance, lots of comedy, and the always prevalent teen angst. I felt like I was transported back to my own high school experience and relived some of that experience vicariously through Meg’s eyes. When we first meet Meg she is on her way to her first high school party in the last days of summer before her freshman year begins. She is accompanied by her three best friends (Keesha, Stephanie, and Amy) and very excited at the prospect of seeing her crush, senior Alex. Even though the book is written only from Meg’s perspective I felt like I got to know each individual girl. They are all unique and well developed as characters. By the end of the book, I could anticipate what each girl’s reaction would be before it appeared in the pages. I like the “realness” that the girls possess. They aren’t perfect. They vary in size, color, and interests. They struggle with things just like any high school kid would. I felt a connection with each one of them. Prestsater didn’t stop with just the girls. Her male characters are just as well fleshed out and real as their counterparts. Not only do they balance the girls out but they all play well off one another as well. Once again, I liked their “realness”. Alex, Ben, Josh, Jonathan, and Dominic are good looking, hot guys. However, they are also goofy, gross at times, and never take themselves too seriously. They are typical high school dudes. There’s even something for the slightly older set (Ahem, which includes me!). Most books in the YA genre skip over the parents or just make them caricatures, but not Prestsater. The parents of this group are just as much a part of the story as the kids. They embarrass their kids with their goofiness, they actually talk with the kids, and they are probably the most true-to-real-life parents I’ve ever read in a book. As they form bonds of friendship that will carry them through their high school years and beyond, the Double Threat Crew had me flipping pages as fast as I could. I am invested in this group of kids and I can’t wait to see what Meg’s sophomore year brings! I recommend this book!!! It has something for everyone and you won’t be able to put it down! A+ to Julie Prestsater! *I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.* Shannon

Really. Sometimes with YA books some of the language and interactions feel less than genuine, this book was so far from not genuine. Loved the characters, the interactions, the drama and the building of a love story. But its also the story of friends, connections and the changes that occur as we grow. Beautiful boom and can't wait for the rest of the series!
