Waiting on Wednesday: The Duff by Kody Keplinger


The Duff by Kody Keplinger
Release date:
September 7, 2010

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.

To be honest, I've mostly heard thus far that this is a slightly mediocre book, but I'd still like to give it a chance. Even if we aren't all willing to admit it, I think most people compare themselves
to their friends at some point in time. The romance also sounds intriguing, because Bianca and Wesley both sound a little bit annoying. The last paragraph has me wanting more, because I begin to wonder how the characters will evolve once I pick up the book. Thankfully, I'll be able to read a copy of this book through Star Book Tours.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Excellent pick! I read/reviewed this a few weeks ago, and I loved it. Though I could see where people could be turned off from it. Personally speaking though, it's definitely worth the 'wait'
    Hope you enjoy it!
