Goodreads synopsis:

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.

My review:

What I liked about So I’m A Double Threat:

*It is a book that I would let my tween/young teen read. Very clean (like no sex for the main character clean) and it touched on a lot of subjects that are affecting kids these days . Drug use, peer pressure were two of the main themes.

* I liked that Meg’s character was so real. Even an old lady like me (if you call 37 old…lol) can relate to her.

* The book was genuinely funny and it made me giggle at some of the situations that Meg got herself into . Her views on the beach I totally agree with…lmao.

What I disliked about So I’m A Double Threat:

*The guys. Alex, Ben and Eric (Meg’s love interests) really irked me for some reason. Alex because he came across as a pushover. Ben because he was just a moron and Eric because he turned out to be a real dick.

* The whole automatically being popular. I don’t know. The author could have had the girls come across as more nerdy. Not sexy. Not that nerdy isn’t sexy. Man, I give up. LOL.

Book I am reading next:
