Not a lighthearted fun teenage book. Freshman students going to alchohol parties and sexual innuendo in the first couple of chapters...I quit reading and deleted from my kindle. I wouldn't want my teenager to read it.

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!

Format: Paperback
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.

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 eReader 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!
