Book Review: The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger

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 Review 
I loved this books, i thought it was very different to what i have read. I love the writing style that Kody Keplinger used. I love that Bianca was not that usual main character that we see in most YA novels, she is not the prettiest girl, not the popular girl, not the supermodel looking girl, She is the girl that alot of teen girls these days can connect to, not only on looks, but how they feel as well. I Connect with Bianca pretty much straight away. I love the Character of Wesley, first the name, you don't see that much in novels these days, well i don't, i also love his attitude and i have no idea why, yes he can be a dick and not know what he says hurts people, but when you see his soft side, oh my gosh, i just feel in love with him, who wouldn't. I also like how Kody intertwine different matters into the main story line, like the one between her parents and about Wesley's problems . I thought it was a very clever idea. I also like the concept of the DUFF (designated, ugly, fat, friend) i think it can change alot of perspective of people, that do feel like a DUFF, especially what we find out near the endish what Bianca thinks about the DUFF. I didn't really like Bianca's friend Jessica I don't know she just got on my nerves. But over all i really enjoyed this book. 

Therefor i have given this book a 4.5 Stars out of 5. 

Favourite Books from this book: 
'No Mattter where you go or what you do to distract yourself, reality catches up with you eventually'
'Wesley took my hand and laced his fingers with mine 'you look beautiful tonight, Bianca' '
