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.
HERE'S THE DEAL
Okay, the reason why I want to read THE DUFF is because not only have I been waiting to read it for a long time, but I love the history behind the story, and I love that Bianca isn't perfect or a size two and she knows this, and she's not ashamed of it.
I also adore Kody's writing and I remember MDW/FNWing with her on AW and though I never read a snip from THE DUFF I have gotten a chance to read snips from her other project, which had a love interest that I really really liked. She had told me that Wes was way HOTTER than that particular LI, so I really want to find that out for myself...and I can't wait til September.
I SERIOUSLY NEED TO READ THIS BOOK, LIKE, NOW.
