The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend

So I just finished reading this amazing book called the DUFF, which stands for: Designated Ugly Fat Friend.  Now I dont know about you, but I had never heard this term before and was surprised when the author of this book (who was 17 when she wrote it) said that hearing this term thrown around by her friends was what inspired her to write this book and show girls that they are better than that.  I know that I have always sort of felt like the DUFF with my group of friends, but after finishing this book, I realize that everyone feels like the DUFF at some point and that everyone has special qualities that they each bring to the friendship table.  I really enjoyed the message of this book and was amazed that the author was so young.  The book was just so fresh and funny and everything I didnt think it could be.  I think all girls should read this book, young and old!!!

Here's the synopsis:

"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

So check it out!!!!
