In a group of friends there is always a DUFF or the "ugly duckling" the one compared to her friends she is very unattractive, she doesn't have a sexy body and not a lot of boys is chasing her. Bianca Piper is the duff in her small group of friends a name given to her by the school's biggest womanizer Wesley Rush, Bianca hates Wesley but one night she kissed Wesley to numb her pain and forget about her problems at first that kiss was just an escape, but that kiss became so much more...


*i'm actually happy that Me and the main character have the same perception about boys and love you see she hates boys and thinks that love is a deep word that takes years and years to develop,. while me, I'm just crushing on male celebrities but I'm not actually falling head over heels to the School's heartthrob, i pretty much don't care about them. and i usually ignore them.. LOL

* maybe i was a bit shocked about Bianca's action so she could forget about her pain and problems. I mean do you have to kiss and sleep with some guy so you can forget about your problem? not just once but soooooooooo many countless times... and yeah it's kinda bitchy,slutty and dirty.

why 5 stars?

5 stars because...

-i actually like the story there's a valuable lesson that you will get when ur done reading the book and the book pretty much talks about normal teenage problems like heart breaks, family break-ups, trying to fit in, dealing with teen angst and peer pressure.

- the love team is quite different sure you already hear of Ugly duckling + dashing dude = WEEE!!! TYPICAL LOVETEAM . but in this book you'll get BITCHY UGLY DUCKLING + MAN-WHORE DASHING DUDE= a not so typical loveteam

- Escape is impossible so why not embrace it? ____ a very good quote to live by.. :)

In the book Duff is Designated Ugly Fat Friend, you'll get the impression that they are an outcast,pathetic,horrible and monstrous, but in reality each and every one of us is a DUFF none of us is perfect and all has insecurities of their own... So yeah.. I'm also a DUFF. :D
