Winter 2011 Kids' Next List

“From debut novelist (and 18-year-old college student!) Kody Keplinger comes a delightfully quirky novel that is impossible to put down! Bianca is equal parts smart, sensitive, strong, and sharp-tongued -- simply a wonderful heroine to root for. Keplinger's characters are interesting and avoid the common cliches of young adult fiction. The DUFF is not to be missed!”
— Megan Graves, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA


Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper suddenly realizes with absolute horror that she's falling for the slimy school hottie that she thought she hated. Turns out, he's not a bad listener. Soon, Bianca realizes how harmful her unhealthy way of dealing with her problems has been, and finds a way to confront them head on.
