“Late Night with Julie Prestsater with Special Guest: Alex Aguilar”

Julie: Hey, Alex. Nice to you see you again.
Alex: Nice to see you too. Thanks for having me.
Julie: It’s been awhile. We’ve read about you in So I’m a Double Threat. Since then, you’ve come back in Double Threat My Bleep, and Double Time.
Alex: That’s right. I’ve been busy. 
Julie: We have a lot to talk about, especially your private life. Let me just warn the readers, some spoilers are coming your way.
Alex: Good idea, we don’t want to give anything away.
Julie: You ready?
Alex: Absolutely. What’s your first question? Hit me?
Julie: Nice choice of words, because at the beginning of first book, I really wanted to hit you. Hard.
Alex: I’ve been told that before. A lot, actually.
Julie: Stop with that grin, you’re distracting me.
Alex: I’ll try.
Julie: Let me start with this: Why? Why? Why?
Alex: (chuckles)
Julie: Really? Why Amy? She’s awful.
Alex: I really didn’t have any intention of hooking up with her, but at that party, she came on a little strong. She told me some things, which I know now to be false, and I just went with it. Here’s this beautiful girl, sexy as hell, trying to hook up with me … what guy in my shoes would walk away from that?
Julie: A smart one. So tell us, what did Amy say? Or should I say, what lies did she feed you?
Alex: You know, I’ve never told anyone this. Not even Megan.
Julie: That’s okay, your secret is safe with us.
Alex: (long pause) Okay. At the party, Meg was dancing and Amy was alone. So, I went up to her and started asking about Meg. I was interested in Meg from the beginning, not her friend. She told me Meg wasn’t interested in going out with guys until she was a senior. And she was definitely not interested in me. She said Meg thought of me as a big brother.
Julie: And you believed that crock of sh…? Crap?
Alex: I know, I know. I was an idiot.
Julie: Ben said you broke up with your girlfriend so you could go out with Amy. What do you have to say about that?
Alex: Ben obviously didn’t know what the hell he was talking about.
Julie: I still can’t believe you listened to Amy.
Alex: I had no reason to believe she’d lie. I didn’t really know her that well.
Julie: You knew her well enough to stick your tongue down her throat. Right in front of Meggie.
Alex: (squirms) I know. That was bad. But, I’d like to think I’ve made up for it since. Just ask Megan. I think she’d agree. (winks)
Julie: Well, I guess we’ll just have to read on to see. That’s all the time we have today. Thanks for chatting with me, Alex.
Alex: Sure, anytime.

So I’m a Double Threat

By Julie Prestsater

Genre: YA

Megan Miller, a freshman at Carver High and a Double Threat, the perfect combination of smart and popular.

She's got the grades, she's got the friends, and she's got the connections. Freshman year should be a breeze, but it's not. How can it be when you have boys, boys and boys on the brain.

And really only one in particular.

Alex Aguilar...the boy of Meg's dreams.

They met at a party and Meg's whole world shifted. The spark was there, there was no denying it. But could that spark lead to more? Can a Senior and Freshman really make a go of it no matter what kind of connection they share? Or will outside circumstances ruin not only Meg's Freshman year, but her chance at hooking the guy of her dreams.

Being a Double Threat is supposed to make you special, but is it worth it if you don't get your crush?

About the Author:

Julie is a high school reading intervention teacher who prides herself on matching her students with great books to encourage them to become life-long readers. She enjoys writing stories that even the most reluctant of readers will not want to put down.

Julie is a mom, a wife, a teacher, a reader, and a writer. She also a lunatic when it comes to the NFL and playing Fantasy Football, especially if she doesn't get my first pick quarterback: Tony Romo. When she’s not at home or work, you can probably catch her on the 15 freeway singing her heart out and dancing away in her car.

  1. Interesting interview! I was afraid to read too far because of the warning of "spoiler alert"! Love the fact that Julie takes time to match readers to books that they will love. That should keep them reading. Thanks, Julie!!
