 The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend)
by Kody Keplinger
September 7, 2010

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn't think she's the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She's also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her "Duffy," she throws her Coke in his face.

But things aren't so great at home right now. Desperate for a distraction, Bianca ends up kissing Wesley. And likes it. Eager for escape, she throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with Wesley.

Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out that Wesley isn't such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she's falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone. 
I'm incredibly excited about this book! I honestly cannot wait to get my hands on this lovely book. Who can resist that catchy title? It sounds like an interesting love story, a fun, quirky kind that's sure to put a smile on my face. I've heard fantastic reviews about it, too. And I love that it was written by a teenager- at eighteen, Kody Keplinger already has a published book. Now that's what I call amazing :)
