The Duff by Kody Keplinger
Release Date: September 7th 2010
Synopsis from Goodreads:Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn't think she's the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She's also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her "Duffy," she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren't so great at home right now. Desperate for a distraction, Bianca ends up kissing Wesley. And likes it. Eager for escape, she throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with Wesley.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out that Wesley isn't such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she's falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.
I think that the reason I chose this is pretty obvious. I mean, a main character who's not stick thin? A hate turns to love relationship? Hello, this is good stuff people. The cover is awesome too, I love the way the bubble gum matches the eyeshadow. What are you waiting on the week?
