Bianca no se considera la más guapa del instituto, pero sí demasiado lista para dejarse engañar por el atractivo y mujeriego Wesley Rush. Por eso, cuando Wesley la llama Duff -apodo que utiliza para referirse a la chica menos agraciada de un grupo de amigas-, lo último que ella espera es acabar besándose con él. Pero ha pasado y, aunque lo odia con todas sus fuerzas, el beso le gusta. Y sin apenas saber cómo, empiezan una relación secreta de amigos (o enemigos) con derecho a roce.
When school "man-whore" Wesley informs Bianca that, compared to her group of beautiful friends, she is the Duff Designated Ugly Fat Friend 17-year-old Bianca is horrified, outraged, and can't stop thinking about the label ("I couldn't believe he was making me worry about such stupid, pointless, shallow bullshit"). Which makes it all the more upsetting when she starts hooking up regularly with Wesley (even though he continues to call her "Duffy"), as a distraction from her father's struggles with alcohol and the divorce her mother is seeking. Keplinger's premise will easily hook readers as she offers the kind of conventional romance (albeit one that is heavy on hookup sex) that summer teen flicks are made of in this well-written, irreverent, and heartfelt debut. Bianca's friends care about her deeply, so there is little drama between them; the arc of this story is more about Bianca coming to grips with her feelings for Wesley, who is actually a good guy, than about restoring her self-image. Bianca is consistently strong, witty, and confident, and while the nickname pinches, it does little to hurt her self-esteem. Ages 15 up. \n
