NOTE: This is a book. Yay *little shimmy*
So I decided to shop at Barnes and Noble (an indie bookstore intern? THE HORROR) because I had a giftcard. Which I spent on an awesome haul of promising books.
Which included this one: The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger. And I really liked this one.
Now I have read Shut Out by her, and I knew she liked to bring up sex and swear and stuff like that.
But BAM does this book have it. Not graphically, but kind of up-front. Like, "Hell yeah I'm having sex. Deal with it." And this I appreciated. Too many people are squeamish. I DECLARE LET THERE BE SEX IF THE AUTHOR SO PROCLAIMS.
Here are the other things I liked:
The voice is AWESOME. Bianca is an awesome character and she just had this really dry, sarcastic voice that I thought was magnificent. And I liked that she swore and she was upfront.
The romance was so... I can't find a good description so I'll just list my feels. Wesley was such a dick but he was just hiding his kind side and Bianca has been insecure and afraid of her parents' divorce and I was just rooting for them to get together the entire time.
Great message. I shall just say this quote "We're all fucking Duffs."
But yes, this book gets 233 Duffs out of 233. Keplinger did a great job.
Bye! Happy Fourth of July!
