Publisher's Summary

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 “the Duff”, she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out 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.

Decent Story, Horrid Narrator

I started reading this book in the bookstore and the storyline is interesting, a little naughty without being raunchy - basically a fun fluffy read. When I got the audiobook I was shocked at how bad the narrator is. She is monotone, stiff and bored sounding throughout the first half of the book and the second half is only slightly better. I definately won't be looking for any other books narrated by Ms. Grafton.

I wish I would have passed on The DUFF!

I saw the preview for the movie based on this book and thought that I would give it a listen. I wish that I hadn't! Okay there are so many things about this book that bothered me. First, the main character was annoying and a total downer. Second, the narrator wasn't great. Third, these teenagers are going around like they're 30-year-olds, having sex with many different partners and not caring about the consequences. Fourth, where were their parents, what parents leave their teenagers alone all the time?!? Fifth, the language was terrible! After finishing this book I just felt sad, even though it was supposed to be a happy ending. If this is what teenagers are really like now I'm scared for our world.
