"You didn't, like, stab the boy, did you? I mean, I totally disapprove of murdering hotties, but if you need help burying the body, you know I'll bring the shovel."While I'm reasonably certain that using someone else to forget your problems is a bad idea, it makes for a great book. I went expecting it to be a typical chic lit type book, more in line with Sarah Dessen, but I found that The DUFF was very witty and much more relatable for me. Not that I ever did what Bianca did, but I understand the impulse to want to lose yourself in something. But that never works out.
So anyway, I actually liked Bianca. She has some really horrible problems that she didn't deal with well. But her friends were great and very supportive. All the characters felt very real and very natural. It was a very engaging book and I hated putting it down. I wasn't sure how I was going to like it and I really didn't know how Wesley was going to become a sympathetic character and I also didn't care for the term of the "Duff" but it was interesting to see that evolve too and I thought that Keplinger pulled it off impressively.
