BOOK REVIEW: The Duff 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 "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."-Goodreads
Rate: 5 of 5 stars
My Thoughts:
I have to thank my bestfriend Katie and her cousin Molly for bringing this book into my life! <3 I love you guys so much! And I absolutly loved the book. First off: I felt like the love-hate relationship between Bianca and Wesley was both adorable and hilarious. I felt like this book was very well writen.
Bianca is a character that every girl can relate to in some way. she mught be a bit cinicle, but her character was flawed, yet believable. Bianca has some hard times in life and it all seems to double when the school hottie and playboy, Wesley Rush, tells her she is The Duff. Then nicknames her Duffy. After that, things snowball into one big ball of mess! Bianca doesn't like Wesley very much. She actually hates his guts! Her home life isnt all that great and you sympathize for her, so you kinda get the picture that her life isnt exactly going very well. And how does she find a way out, you may ask? sleeping with the guy she hates the most.....Wesley.
Wesley, oh Wesley. Where do i begin? well, at first i thought that Wesley was a stuck up, man whore-ish jerk who doesnt care about anyones feeling, but wesley has just as much problems as Bianca. Plus he's hot, so brownie points to Wesley! I dont wanna spoil any of the ending, but Wesley does change. So don't think he's a COMPLETE asshole.
Every teen girl should read this. They may see that they are not alone in the world. Everyone thinks they are a Duff, at least once in their life.
“Spanish, huh?" he said, glancing down at the scattered papers as he grabbed them.
"Can you say anything interesting?"
"El tono de tu voz hace que queria estrangularme." I stood up and waited for him to hand over my papers.
"That sounds sexy," he said, getting to his feet and handing me the stack of Spanish work he'd swept together. "What's it mean?"
"The sound of your voice makes me want to strangle myself."
