Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is smart, cynical, loyal - and well aware that she's not the hot one in her group of friends. But when high-school jock and all round moron Wesley Rush tells her she's a DUFF - a Designated, Ugly Fat Friend - Bianca does not the see funny side. She may not be a beauty but she'd never stoop so low as to go anywhere near the likes of Wesley ... Or would she? Bianca is about to find out that attraction defies looks and that sometimes your sworn enemies can become your best friends ...

With a wry and tell-it-like-it-is voice, New York Times Bestselling novel The Duff is a witty and poignant story of a teenager struggling with the rules of high school attraction, along with the breaking down of her relationships with family and friends. It is a novel about what it means to be sexy, in a world where we feel we have to be perfect!

A Hamilton High School story from Kody Keplinger.

Now a film starring Mae Whitman, Bella Thorne and Alison Janney - out on DVD Summer 2015.

In the media
An interesting and enjoyable read

Kelly Pringle, Liberton High Teen Titles

Kody Keplinger breathed some new life into the now horribly cliched idea of a love triangle by writing realistically flawed characters ... hilarious

South Wales Evening Post

An earthy, realistic and compelling depiction of teenage relationships and self-image

Book Trust

Written when the author herself was just 17, this debut novel has a bluntly honest edge ... compulsive reading, with a sassy heroine you'll find yourself rooting for against all the odds
