The DUFF book review

6931356

My first of many book reviews is of The DUFF. I did a review of the movie adaptation, but that will not factor into THIS review at all. The DUFF follows Bianca Piper, a senior in high school. Bianca is struggling with a difficult time at home, and the stress of senior year at high school. She then is told by the school man-whore Wesley, that she is in fact also a DUFF. Designated Ugly Fat Friend. The DUFF is a spectacular book. To give a perfect example of how good it is, I found out it existed at 10am, started reading it at noon, and didn’t put it down that day till I finished. The DUFF is definitely an easy YA/high school read, but it tackles big issues in a way that keeps it at a good level. I kept telling myself I was going to put it down and finish the last few chapters the next day, but the relationship was too intriguing. I needed to know what was going to happen, and how these problems would be solved. Very few books get the honor of being a movie, I see why this one did.

  1. This does seem like a page turner. I don’t do this often but I actually saw the movie before I had the chance to pick up the book. The movie was fun but not something I’d rewatch. I’m so glad to hear the book is enjoyable though! I do plan to read this!
