Title: The DUFF

Author: Kody Keplinger

Book read on November 30th, 2011!

My rating: 4 of 5

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.

 My thoughts on the book:
I have to admit that at the beginning I wasn't too crazy about this book. Although I could understand from the beginning why Bianca was acting the way she was, there was just something missing & I just couldn't really connect with her. But, slowly, as the story progressed, that changed. I really started to like Wesley & Bianca as characters & I loved the banter between them. Also, there was lots of chemistry. I mean, this book was hot - I didn't really expect that ;) Anyway, there were also some great advices for teens in this book, which I really liked. Overall, The DUFF is fun & fast read, that I enjoyed a lot, I almost loved it ;) & I recommend it.
