She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. It was a very entertaining and fun!

The DUFF: (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) Book Review

Like seriously, I kind of can’t believe how much I loved a book that literally means “ugly fat friend”. Set preferences to see our top age-appropriate picks for your kids. Which, when you think about it, is sort of a great thing for a writer to be able to make me want to do to one of their characters.

I really enjoyed this story. Refresh and try again. Why be your own bully? Wesley’s parents are always gone and his crone of a grandmother won’t let him see his sister. I found myself wondering how this girl had made any friends at all. They have fun dancing and she spends most her time chatting up the barkeep named Joe.

I love that Jessica was the one who saw that Toby wasn’t really for Bianca. I mean, he was a keplingwr dorky, but that was what made him so adorable. By the end of the book though? Bianca is in a group of three friends with Casey and Jessica; both pretty, both flawless in her eyes. Wesley is one of the best looking guys at school.


The DUFF: (Designated Ugly Fat Friend)

Turns out, Wesley may be sleeping around for the same reasons that Bianca is sleeping with him. For more of my reviews, please visit: That’s how Friiend would describe it.

And, to add to the insanity, he also so graciously informs her that she is the DUFF: You can’t have sex with a man 65 times and then just tell him he’s cut off for no keppinger reason – oh, but you’re still dating and you’re still an exclusive couple. However, if you like me have some wiggle room in your brain for that, then you probably won’t be offended.

And at times we all feel like the Duff. But, that would circle the point I’m trying to make-oops before I really know what I’m talking about. I had this on my TBR pile for quite a long time but I keep on passing through it. Hopefully it doesn’t suck. And I think that’s where a lot of readers get the idea that this promotes low self-esteem.

The other things that surprised me about this book? It’s a crazy concept.

The DUFF by Kody Keplinger – review

Your father will come to his senses, go to AA meetings from now on, never drink again and everything will be alright between the two of you. But comparing jumping in the sack with a guy you can’t stand to cancer patients? View all 16 comments. For kids who love love and romance. But yeah, I guess it’s better late than never, right? And I could understand her kepliger had it been described as some sort of an addiction.


Based on 7 reviews. Resignated read with Aly and Figgy. Why, then, would she choose him, of all people to find oblivion with? The reader did a great job developing the characters with voice changes, etc. I guess I should be happy that she wasn’t the stereotypical keplinyer They believed he was a good guy they could tame, but I knew he was a jackass.

I read a blog post by Kody Keplinger today where she remarked that a lot of the people who criticised The DUFF did so because of the sex scenes in the book. I won’t judge a book by it’s cover.

I have not managed to find any indications on what makes you love it or hate it, though. Unfortunately, I let that scare me off.

Bianca was only fourteen when she had her heart stomped on by an upperclassman. Becky Albertalli Narrated by: Keplihger one scene where view spoiler [Bianca’s dad calls her a whore over and over and strikes her in the face hide spoiler ] was really tough for me to read.
