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 “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face.

But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.

Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out 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.

The DUFF by Kody Keplinger is a quick and easy read about Bianca Piper who gets called the DUFF by the school hottie Wesley Rush who talks to her in hopes of getting with one of her hot best friends. This episode starts the book and the relationship between the two main characters.

Overall, it was an okay read and if you’re interested in watching the movie or have (which I have not seen, but may now after reading the book) it’d be fun to read to see the differences/similarities. 🙂
